LINDSBORG — Bethany College men’s basketball coach Clair Oleen has signed so many new players that he might need two teams next year.

The never-ending recruiting process continued for Oleen as today the signing of Wichita’s Bryce Money was announced.

Money, a 6-1 guard, played basketball, ran cross country and competed in track for four years at Wichita West High School.

Money earned Wichita City League honorable mention honors in basketball, and was named to the Colby All-Tournament Team. 

He was a cross country state qualifier, and a regional champion and state winner in the 4 x 800 relay. He also earned the “Outstanding Senior” award in basketball and cross country.

Off the court, Money was a member of the Multi-Cultural Club, won first place in the science fair, was a volunteer camp leader for Weed and Feed-Oklahoma and volunteered for KBAF basketball camp for four years.

"We are pleased to have Bryce Money choose to continue his education and basketball career here at Bethany College," Oleen said. "Bryce is a tremendous young man and a basketball player with a lot of upside. He also got to learn and develop a lot this past season under the legendary coach Carl Taylor at Wichita West High School."

Money is the son of Simone Klein. He plans to major in biology.
