Men's Basketball - Mon, May. 6, 2013 by Troy Baranik

St. Andrews University head men's basketball coach Andrew Brown has signed Jason Payne, a 6'2 Wing player from Lee County High School in Sanford, NC to an athletic scholarship to play for the Knights next season.  

Payne was a very underrated high school player that excelled in a variety of areas at Lee County High School. He was selected to the all-tournament team in the Lee County Christmas Invitational, made the academic all-conference team, and currently has a 3.6 G.P.A.

In addition, he led his team in 3-pt. field goals made and averaged 10 ppg. and 7 rebounds per contest.

Coach Brown stated that "Jason has a unique ability to get his hands on a lot of deflections and showed this year that he can defend on the perimeter. He is a very good defender with a good wing span that will assist with our perimeter defense next season.  Also, he can stretch a defense with his ability to shoot the basketball from long range."
