April 19, 2012
HARROGATE, TN -- Curtis Webb has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at Lincoln Memorial University, Railsplitter head coach Josh Schertz announced Thursday.
"We are so excited to have Curtis on board," Schertz said of Webb. "At 6'3, he is a tall guard that can really shoot it. He's a good athlete. He's tough, loves to play and certainly will be a great representative of our university.He's been very well drilled and well coached at Dorman High School (SC) under coach Thomas Ryan. The transition to the collegiate level should be very smooth for him. We see him being an impact player for us beginning day one upon his arrival on campus."
Webb who also carries a 3.9 GPA was named the Spartanburg Herald Player of the Year in 2012 along with being named the Region Player of the Year. Webb was a First Team All-State selection in 2012 and was named to the All-State team in 2011 as well. He scored better than 1100 points in his career and was voted team MVP after both his junior and a senior seasons. Webb also played in the North-South All-Star Game as well as the FCA All-Star Game.
"One of the reasons we like him so much is the quality of person that he is," Schertz added. "I believe that having Curtis as well as his parents, Curtis Sr. and Daisy, join our LMU family will do nothing but enhance our program."
The Railsplitters will return 70% of their scoring and 8 of their top 11 scorers in 2012-13 from a team that posted a 26-6 mark and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Southeast Region Semifinals in 2011-12. Over the last three seasons Lincoln Memorial ranks #1 in the Southeast Region in winning percentage (81.3%) having posted a 74-17 record during this time period.
