Beyer commits to USI men’s basketball

The University of Southern Indiana men’s basketball team has signed Sam Beyer, a 6’9” forward/center from Illinois Valley Community College, for the 2002-03 season. Beyer is the sixth person to commit to USI and Head Coach Rick Herdes this spring.

Beyer helped lead IVCC to a 13-17 overall record in 2002-03, ranking third on the team with 7.0 rebounds and 7.9 points per contest. He shot 48.3 percent from the field (85-176) and 66.7 percent from the line (26-39) in his second season.

The sophomore also dished 17 assists, blocked 12 shots, and posted 12 steals in 25 games.

“I think USI is a good match for Sam,” said IVCC Head Coach Mike Riley. “He is going to a quality program with a good academic reputation. USI is getting a quality person in Sam, who will stretch defenses out with his outside shooting. Sam has a good work ethic that should fit right in with the program.”

“Sam is any piece of the puzzle,” said Herdes. “He played with a fractured finger all year as a sophomore. His recruiting was all Division I from Kansas State to Moorhead State. We are excited to get another quality big man.”
