Like LeBron James a decade ago, Katy native Kameron McGusty has taken his talents to South Beach.
The 6-foot-5-inch, 192-pound forward gives the University of Miami a reliable offensive weapon. A year after sitting out in accordance with NCAA transfer rules, McGusty is averaging 13.3 points a game on approximately 35-percent shooting from behind the arc.
His best game as a scorer was Miami’s 80-52 win over Quinnipiac on Nov. 16. He chipped in 22 points on 7-for-17 shooting, including four three-pointers made, in 35 minutes of action.
Prior to his arrival in Coral Gables, McGusty played for Oklahoma, where he averaged nearly nine points per contest. In high school, he starred at both Sunrise Christian Academy in Kansas and Katy Seven Lakes.
McGusty and Miami will take on Illinois on Dec. 2.
