Noonan commits to AF men's hoops team

Trevor Noonan, a 6-foot-8 wing player from Legacy High School in Broomfield, has verbally committed to Air Force, his father, Legacy boys basketball coach Jim Noonan, said Wednesday.

Trevor Noonan averaged 13.5 points, eight rebounds and three blocks last season for Legacy, which finished 12-12. Noonan was named to the All-Front Range League first team. In a game against Horizon, Noonan scored 40 points, including eight 3-pointers.

Noonan chose Air Force over Denver and Cal-Poly, his father said.

“He just felt like it was a great fit for his skills,” Jim Noonan said. “The style that he plays, he’s a very good passer, he shoots the 3 very well, and he just thinks, and I do too, that this is the best system for him.”

Jake,

Is there a possibility that the BB team will still add a game, or is the schedule they just released, the final schedule?

thanks!

Stats dr -

As Tony Kornheiser says, "that's it, that's the list."

I don't forsee them adding another game.

I hope this kid is ready for the military too. I'm surprised he would dismiss DU on a style basis now that Joe Scott is there. Is he projected to go the Prep School, or is it too early to tell.

If he's choosing the United States Air Force Academy because it's a good fit for his ball passing and shooting skills, he be gone before the first team practice. Hopefully the kid knows what he's getting himself into.

I don't think that's the only reason. He talked about all the opportunities the academy gives a young person, etc.

And according to Noonan, he plans to head right to the academy, not go first to the prep school

I don't know if something's wrong with my computer or not, but I guess I expected to see a prediction from BlogDog by now. Any word from him, Jake?
