MOUNDRIDGE — The Newman University Jets could have an all-McPherson County backcourt next season.

The Jets recently signed Moundridge’s all-time leading scorer Trey Unrau to a letter of intent. One of the top guards last season for Newman was McPherson High graduate Jack Pyle.

Unrau has spent the past two seasons at Barton County Community College in Great Bend. He played in 31 games as a sophomore, starting six. He averaged 5.2 points a game and was a 3-point specialist as 46 of his 51 field goals were from beyond the arc as he shot 35 percent. The Cougars were 20-11 on the season, 8-6 in the rugged Jayhawk West Conference.

Unrau, who played for his father, Vance, was a four-year starter at Moundridge High School and broke numerous longstanding records during his illustrious career. Among his records:

• Total points in a single season (629)

• Most career points (2,250)

• High scoring average in a season (26.9)

• Most points in a single game (45)

• Most 3-point field goals in a season (85)

He also ranks in the Top 5 in several other categories.

The Jets, who have been a power in recent years, fell off last year to a 9-17 season under veteran coach Mark Potter and were 6-12 in conference play.
