Adams joining reigning ACAA champion Hurricanes
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.
