Oklahoma native Trey Black signs with Saints

Moberly, Mo.

Central Christian College of the Bible head men's basketball coach Jack Defreitas on Wednesday announced the signing of Trey Black for the 2018-19 season. Black is the third member of the Saints' 2018 class.

Black, a 6-0 combo guard from Choctaw High School in Choctaw, Oklahoma, is currently a senior and will graduate in May. The three-year letterman and two-year starter for the Yellowjackets averaged 10.2 points, 4.0 assists, and 3.5 rebounds per game as a senior.

Black was named as an honorable mention selection to both the Oklahoman's Big All-City team and the Super 5, All-State team for 2017-18. This past season Black helped the Yellowjackets, who compete in Oklahoma's largest classification at 6A, achieve their first winning season in over a decade with a 12-11 season.

"Trey is just an outstanding addition for us all around," Defreitas said. "He shoots it well from the inside and out, plays the game extremely hard, and does a lot of the little things that not everybody wants to do. He's a leader in his youth group and I believe he'll be a leader here as well."

While at CCCB, Black plans to pursue an Associate of Professional Studies and a dual-enrollment degree in Business Administration from a partner institution.

Black joins Luis Garza of Mission, Texas, and Cruz Mendoza of Alton, Texas, as members of the Saints' 2018 recruiting class.
