First Girl's Playoff Game
Here are some pictures from the Varsity Girls first home playoff game!
One of the most successful athletes to ever go through the South Medford High School sports program is Kyle Singler. During his Senior year, Kyle averaged 29.3 points and 10.6 rebounds per game.In 2006, Singler signed a letter of intent to go to Duke and in 2007, Kyle led our Panthers to win their first-ever state basketball championship.
In the 2006-2007 season, Kyle started at power forward as a freshman. He averaged 13.3 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. Even though he was the leading scorer and helped Duke obtain a record of 28-6, he said that he did not want to enter the NBA draft because he wasn’t ready both physically and mentally. He stated he wanted to improve his game and become stronger and quicker.
In 2011, Kyle was selected as the 33rd pick in the NBA draft by the Detroit Pistons. It was on July 11, 2012 that Kyle officially signed with the Pistons. He had a career-high game scoring 22 points in the 2012-2013 season which might have helped him be chosen for the All-Rookie second team.
On February 19th, 2015, Kyle was traded in a three-team deal to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
From the small town of Medford, Oregon, Kyle Singler was selected to play basketball at a top college, Duke, was drafted into the NBA, and is now playing on a team with some of the most decorated players in the NBA: Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Dion Waiters, Jeremy Lamb, and Serge Ibaka. Perhaps Kyle Singler will be the next NBA star.John-James Agnifili, Digital Journalism
