Emmanuel Dwight Abad of Union City has signed a letter of intent to play men's basketball at Bethany College for the 2012-2013 academic year.
Abad, a five-foot-nine guard, is transferring to Bethany from Las Positas Community College. His sophomore statistics include 15 points per game, 2.0 rebounds per game and 3.4 assists per game. Abad shot 40% from the field and 84% from the free throw line. Prior to college, Abad attended James Logan High School, where he played basketball all four years.
Head Men's Basketball Coach Clair Oleen says, "Dwight Abad joins us from Las Positas Community College, where Coach Tony Costello has brought the basketball program to be among the elite in one of the toughest conferences in California. Dwight is a point guard who can really shoot, penetrate, and pass well. We really like Dwight's positive composure and leadership qualities. He is an excellent teammate."
Abad, the son of Dorothy Abad, is majoring in accounting.
