KCKCC signs 6’1” guard from Aurora, Colorado


For 6-1 guard Tim Wyatt, Kansas City Kansas Community College was a perfect fit for continuing his basketball career at the collegiate level – a ready-made fan club.

Residing in Aurora, Colo., Wyatt played both the point guard and shooting guard positions while averaging eight points a game for Rangeview High School.

“I’m originally from Kansas City and he has grandmothers, aunts and uncles living in the Lee’s Summit area,” said Wyatt’s father, Kevin Wyatt.

“My AAU coach told me this would be a school I might be interested in,” said Wyatt after signing a letter of intent with KCKCC.

“We feel real fortunate to have him,” said KCKCC Coach Kelley Newton. “He’s a great young man, great player and can do a little of everything including handling and shooting the ball. And most important he’s a great character young man.”
