Our Lady of the Lake University has become a Red River Athletic Conference rival for the St. Thomas Celts. Both UST and OLLU reinstated men's basketball in 2009-10 and have competed on the hardwood 11 times since that year. Through the first 11 contests the Saints hold a 6- 5 advantage over the Celts. However, one might think the Celts notched a small victory over their conference foe with the announcement that Bridge Lavey will be transferring home to Houston and the University of St. Thomas.
Fort Bend Elkins has been one of the best high school boys' basketball programs in the Houston area during the last 20 years. It has also been a great place for St. Thomas Coach Todd Smith to recruit student athletes. The Celts picked up their second signee of the spring last Friday when Elkins team captain, Anietie "AJ" Jack became the fourth ever Elkins Knight to join the University of St. Thomas Men's basketball program.
The University of St. Thomas Head Basketball Coach Todd Smith is pleased to announce the signing of Josh Bearden of Magnolia High School. Bearden is a 6'5, 210 lb. athlete who can play inside the paint or on the perimeter. As a senior, Bearden led the team in scoring and rebounding by averaging 17 points and 11 rebounds per game.
Senior Bryan Kaase (SR/Spring, Texas) was named an NAIA Honorable Mention All-American for the second straight year. Kaase, a 6'4" Forward from Klein Collins High School in Spring, Texas, led St. Thomas to back-to-back NAIA National Tournament appearances for the first time in school history. The Celts lost their 1st round match-up in Kansas City this year 74-62 to national runner-up Emmanuel College. In the National tourney game, Kaase finished with 17 points and 7 rebounds.
