Kobe Paras to play US NCAA basketball at Creighton University

The promising Kobe Paras has found a new school where he will continue his budding basketball career as he has committed to US NCAA Division One school Creighton University.

Paras announced his move on Monday.

The Creighton Bluejays have produced NBA players such as Kyle Korver of the Atlanta Hawks, Doug McDermott of the Chicago Bulls, Anthony Tolliver of the Sacramento Kings and former NBA coach Paul Silas.

The Bluejays last played in March Madness in 2014.

Paras had earlier committed to the UCLA Bruins, but withdrew his enrollment from the school due to academic issues.

The 6’5″ guard was previously based in Los Angeles where he studied high school at LA Cathedral. The former FIBA 3×3 U18 World Championship dunk champion last played for Middlebrooks Academy under his old high school coach William Middlebrooks. (Interaksyon)
