Greyhounds' Frase, Eagles' Vaughn to play college basketball
With the basketball season nearly wrapped up for most central Ohio athletes, we should be hearing about where many of the area's top seniors who plan to play small-college basketball are going to end up next winter.
Found out about a couple yesterday from the Grove City community.
Senior guard Miranda Frase from the Grove City girls team will be holding a signing ceremony March 11 to announce her commitment to play for the University of Rio Grande, a school that resides in a small community in southern Ohio. Frase averaged eight points, had 54 assists and 36 steals and made special mention all-OCC-Ohio Division this season as the Greyhounds went 8-14.
Africentric graduate Shardai Morrison-Fountain is among the players for Rio Grande, which is an NAIA school.
Grove City Christian senior boys basketball player Derek Vaughn, a 6-foot-1 guard, has committed to Ohio Christian University located in Circleville. OCU competes in the National Christian College Athletic Association.
Vaughn made honorable mention all-district in Division IV this season as the Eagles went 9-15.
