North Central Missouri College sophomore Terrance Bush is one of 10 players nationwide named to the NCJAA Division II second-team All-American list. Bush, a native of Des Moines, Iowa, and graduate of Des Moines North High School, will leave NCMC as the program’s all-time leading scorer. In early February, Terrance became the first 1,000 point scorer for Head Coach Steve Richman, finishing his career after a region semifinal loss to St. Louis with 1,064 points.
At NCMC, Bush, known across Region 16 for having three-point shooting range out to 40 feet, was a key cog off the bench for the 2014-2015 Pirates team that set a new program record with 22 wins. As a sophomore, Bush, as one of only two returners, took a leadership role on the team and continued to produce, averaging 22 points per game, hitting on 37.4 percent of his three-point attempts, and 80 percent of his free throws.
Coach Steve Richman was very pleased with the postseason honor for Bush:
Joining Bush as second-team All-Americans are Greg Heckstall of Bryant & Stratton (Virginia), Shawn Shelton of Dean (Massachusetts), Brett Rau of Elgin (Illinois), Yusuf Takubu of Erie (New York), Chris Jones of Iowa Lakes, Eddie Longmeyer of Lincoln Land (Illinois), Eddie Tornes of Muskegon (Michigan), James Richardson of Raritan Valley (New Jersey), and Snyder Cenecharles of Southeast (Nebraska).
Bush is the second All-American for NCMC, following in the footsteps of JaWan Davis in 2011 (also a second-team pick).
