#JOSHUA Dames has begun to garner attention from major Division I basketball programmes and received his first offer of what is expected to be an active recruiting process.
#Dames was officially offered by the University of South Carolina State Bulldogs. The Bulldogs compete in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and finished last season at 11-18, culminating with a first round loss in the conference tournament.
#The Grand Bahama native has impressed in his senior season with the British Columbia Christian Prep Panthers, averaging 18 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.8 steals and two assists per game while shooting 63 per cent from the field and 34 per cent from three-point range. Dames scored more than 30 points in at least eight games and had six games with at least six three pointers.
#“In terms of basketball its been a tremendous year for me. Me coming to BC Christian Academy has been just a great experience for me and my family. It has helped me to take my basketball game to just a totally different level. Knowing how to use my emotion, being a composed basketball player, and being able to compete at the highest level has been tremendous for me,” Dames said.
#“I’m blessed to receive my first offer at the start of recruiting season and its just really been an awesome and blessed year.”
