Former Highland Park basketball standout Troy Alexander has transferred from Santa Clara to SMU.
“I love Santa Clara and the area out there, but things just didn’t seem to be working out for me basketball wise,” Alexander said. “I didn’t feel like I was being able to show everything I could show out there and decided to make a move.”
Alexander, a 6-1 guard who will have to sit it the 2010-11 season because of transfer rules. was part of more than 100 wins in his career with the Scots. That included records of 33-5 as a senior and 30-4 as a junior. For the Broncos, Alexander bounced back from an injury-plagued freshman season to play in 31 games as a sophomore.
“Troy is another local player that has done nothing but win,” SMU head coach Matt Doehrty said in a press release. “He is a guard that is a terrific leader and skilled passer. He sees the floor and delivers the ball extremely well. Troy had a great high school career at Highland Park High School for former SMU great David Piehler. He will add a great deal to our program.”
