For­ward Travis Adams will bring ver­sa­til­ity to the Hol­land Hur­ri­canes bas­ket­ball team this fall, said coach Josh Whitty.

“He can beat some­body up in the post or he can han­dle the ball on the perime­ter,” he said. “He’s a guy who is go­ing to help us on both ends of the floor, I think, and a guy who is able to come in and play right away.”

The col­lege an­nounced Adams was join­ing the Hur­ri­canes on Tues­day.

He played as a fresh­man for the Saint Mary’s Huskies in 2013-14 be­fore be­ing a red­shirt last sea­son. It means he can play for Hol­land Col­lege this sea­son.

He av­er­aged 2.8 points and 1.8 re­bounds per games in 7.5 min­utes for a Huskies team that won the At­lantic Univer­sity Sport con­fer­ence in 2013-14.

Adams is six-foot-two, but Whitty cau­tioned: “He cer­tainly plays a lot big­ger than his height.”

Adams is orig­i­nally from Toronto, but fin­ished school at Ci­tadel High in Hal­i­fax and was a first team all-Cana­dian in 2012 with Nova Sco­tia’s un­der-17 squad.

He is en­rolled in the sport and leisure man­age­ment pro­gram.

“My goals for this up­com­ing sea­son is to work hard in the class­room and get a cham­pi­onship with the men’s bas­ket­ball team,” Adams said. “I think Hur­ri­canes bas­ket­ball is an amaz­ing team. Fast pace, run-and-gun style of play which I’ll fit into very well.”

Adams joins Dar­rious Curry, a six-foot-seven for­ward from Hous­ton, as the Hur­ri­canes an­nounced re­cruits.

Whitty said he ex­pects a few more an­nounce­ments in the near fu­ture. Those play­ers will join key re­turnees Trevone Grant, Shawn Lu­cas and Ali Ab­du­laziz.

The two-time de­fend­ing At­lantic Col­le­giate Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion cham­pion Hur­ri­canes be­gin reg­u­lar sea­son play Oct. 31 at Dal­housie Univer­sity - Agri­cul­tural Cam­pus in Bi­ble Hill, N.S.


Travis Adams will be back on the court this year with the Hol­land Col­lege Hur­ri­canes.
