HOUSTON, Texas – Rice University head men’s basketball coach Mike Rhoades announced his first signee on Monday, Chino Hills, Calif. native Bishop Mency (Chino Hills HS).
Rhoades said, “We’re very excited to have Bishop a part of our basketball family at Rice. He brings a combination of skill and athleticism that we need to play in the style we are striving to play. He comes from a great high school program, which will help in his transition to playing college basketball.”
The 6-5 small forward led his Chino Hills team to a 29-6 record this season, including a perfect 10-0 mark in league action. The squad advanced to the state playoffs semifinal before falling in overtime. Coach Steve Baik’s team ended the 2013-14 season ranked fourth in California and 16th nationally.
The first team all-Sierra League honoree averaged 10.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game as a senior and helped the squad win 19 of its last 21 contests, including a berth in the CIF Southern Section Open Division championship game, where it fell to eventual state champion Mater Dei.
As a junior, Mency averaged 13.1 points per game on 75 percent shooting from the field and an incredible 59 percent from downtown. He was named honorable mention all-area on a squad that posted a 24-5 record and 10-0 league mark.
In Mency’s four seasons at Chino Hills, the Huskies posted a 92-29 record, winning 76 percent of their games.
Mency joins early signees Jordan Reed (Lucas, Texas/Lovejoy HS) and Maurice Rivers (Atlanta, Ga./Columbia HS).
