Former Wyandotte Bulldogs player signs with Bethany College

Brandon Huskey, Kansas City, Kan., has signed a letter of intent to play men's basketball at Bethany College for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Huskey, a 6-foot-5 power forward, is transferring to Bethany from Coffeyville Community College where he made the All-Academic Team. Prior to college, Huskey attended Wyandotte High School where he was a four-year starter. He earned second-team all-conference his senior year and honorable mention all-conference his junior year.

During his senior season Huskey averaged 17 points per game, ten rebounds per game and had a 71% free-throw shooting percentage.

"We are pleased to have Brandon Huskey transfer to Bethany from Coffeyville Community College. Brandon had a really good high school career at Wyandotte High School in Kansas City and has grown, developed and matured as a player at Coffeyville," said head men's basketball coach Clair Oleen. "Brandon should be a real force for the Swedes in the paint at both ends of the court as his size, skill and athleticism will be very good in the KCAC. Brandon is also a very good and serious student in the criminal justice field."

Huskey is the son of Brenda Huskey. He has a 3.5 grade point average and plans to major in criminal justice.
