SHREVEPORT—Centenary men’s basketball coach Rob Flaska has announced the signing of Chase Adams to a National Letter of Intent. Adams joins Milutin Marjanovic (6’10” post, Belgrade, Serbia) as Centenary’s early signees set to join the Gents roster in 2006.


Adams is a 5’10” point guard from Mt. St. Joseph High School in Baltimore, Md. He averaged 10 points, six assists, three steals, and four rebounds per game as a junior while leading his squad to a 31-4 record. In his three years as a starter for the Gaels, his teams have won three consecutive Baltimore Catholic League Titles and were ranked #1 in the city of Baltimore in 2004. His current team is nationally ranked in the top 30 by USA Today and 37th by The Sporting News.


“Chase is a winner,” said Flaska of his latest signee. “He has been the starting point guard at Mt. St. Joseph for the last two years and his team has averaged 30-plus wins each season, including the City Championships, and he played on the 2004 AAU National Championship team, the Baltimore Stars.”


Flaska describes Adams as a pure point guard that has a great understanding of the game and is a speedster with the ball.


“I have recruited some good point guards such as Corey Santee at TCU (all-time program assist leader, second in scoring) and Eric Ferguson at Arkansas (four-year starter who will finish in the top three in all-time assists) and Chase will be of the same caliber,” said Flaska. “He will be great in our style of play and will serve as a coach on the floor. He will be an impact player for our program.”


Centenary is a Division I member of the Mid-Continent Conference. Located in Shreveport, La., Centenary is the oldest college west of the Mississippi River having been founded in 1825.
