Trey Tatum, a 6’3 guard from Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School has
committed to continue his education and basketball career at Maryville
College. Tatum, the son of Bob and Eileen Tatum from Greensboro, NC was a
senior standout for the Villains and head coach Josh Thompson. As a three
year starter for Bishop McGuinness, Trey was selected to the 2011
Greensboro News and Record All-Area Team, the 2011 Northwest 1A/2A
All-Conference team, and again as an honorable mention member to the
Northwest 1A/2A All-Conference team in 2012. Trey was also selected to
participate in the Forsyth County East-West All-Star game. In his final
season, Trey averaged 14 points and 5 rebounds per game. Randy Lambert,
head coach of the Fighting Scots, had these comments about Trey’s
commitment, “Trey comes to us from an excellent high school program. He
has the skill set and the basketball I.Q. to play at the college level. As
a perimeter player in our program, we are looking to take advantage of his
shooting ability.” Lambert went on to add, “He should be a natural in our
motion offense. He is a welcome addition to our program.”

Tatum will be joining a Scots basketball team that finished the 2011-2012
year with an 18-10 record. The MC Cagers also accomplished a Great South
Athletic Conference Tournament championship and another birth in the NCAA
