|Columbia Rock Bridge High School and North Central Missouri College product Matt Kelly is leaving the Pirates program after one season.|
Kelly announced on his Facebook page last night that he is transferring to Panola College, a Division One junior college in Carthage, Texas, adding that he is hopeful that the exposure from a D-1 JUCO program helps get him a transfer to a D-1 NCAA program for the 2013-2014 season.
Kelly helped lead North Central to an 18-11 record in his only season at the Trenton JUCO, including a semifinal loss to Penn Valley in the Region 16 postseason tournament in March. He averaged 15 ½ points, four rebounds, and three assists per game for the Pirates.
North Central has begun to replenish its program with the signing of two players, thus far, in the 2012-2013 recruiting class. Keaton Duncan of Meadville signed earlier this month while Tyler Peterson of Savannah High School signed a week ago today.
