Ware bouncing off to Anderson

B. J. Ware, an All-District 4-AAA guard who helped Bearden High School reach the Class AAA Basketball State Tournament during the 2005-06 season, signed National Letter of Intent papers with Anderson University, an NCAA Division II school of about 1,100 students in Anderson, S.C., during a brief ceremony in the BHS East Mall Monday, May 8. One of the best players in the history of Bearden High School, and one of the best defensive players to set foot in our arena, BHS boys varsity basketball head coach Mark Blevins announced to a gathering of students, teachers and administrators. As for why he chose Anderson, Its a nice campus, I felt comfortable, Ware said. Its a little ways from home, I wanted to get away. Its far enough for me.

Saying Anderson has a number of senior guards on its 2006-07 roster, Ill play a little bit and work my way up, Ware added. Also named to the All-District 4-AAA and Region 2-AAA tourney teams, Ware led BHS in steals with 98, was second on the team in rebounds with 180, and averaged the fewest turnovers per game of any Bearden guard with 1.4. Shooting 50.2 percent from the field, Ware averaged 10.2 points per game, third base on the team. Ware is seated beside his mother, Marci, and little sister, Rosie, 4. Standing, left to right, is Pam Bradshaw, grandmother; younger brother, Benji, a BHS freshman; Bryan Ware, father; Blevins, and Mitch Carter, BHS boys varsity basketball assistant coach.
