Terrific transfer Terry has Hardin-Simmons runnin’ and gunnin’
Seward’s Jalen Terry has provided a much-needed scoring punch in his first season with the Hardin-Simmons University men’s basketball team in Abilene, Texas.
The 6-foot-7 senior has the NCAA D3 team averaging 86.3 points through seven games, which is the second highest season average in the last 10 years.
Terry, of ACS fame, leads Hardin-Simmons with a 12.9-point scoring average in just 19.9 minutes per game.
More importantly, the newcomer has been instrumental in getting the Cowboys back on track after last year suffering their first losing season (9-16) since 2010.
Hardin-Simmons has a 4-3 record to start this season.
Terry bagged a season-high 22 points and 12 rebounds in a 96-71 win over Southwestern Texas on a night he logged a season-high 30 minutes.
In addition to being the leading scorer, he ranks second on the team with 5.1 rebounds per game and fourth with 1.4 assists per game.
He has posted shooting totals of .507 FG/.381 3FG/.750 FT.
Terry transferred from Humboldt State University, who averaged 4.8 points and 1.8 rebounds per game last season.
