BARBOURVILLE, Ky. - Mickey Lewis recently signed his letter of intent to join the Union College men's basketball program, the Union College athletics department announced today.

Lewis, a 6-foot-3 point guard from Franklin Simpson High School, finished as one of Franklin Simpsons' all-time greatest players. For his career, Lewis totaled 1,071 points, 505 rebounds, 235 assists and 168 steals, all while missing half of his junior season with a torn ACL.

For his senior campaign, Lewis averaged a double-double with 22 points and 10 rebounds per contest.

Mickey also helped lead the Wildcats to three straight district championships while also receiving two All-District honors his junior and senior seasons. Lewis also notched an All-State honorable mention in his final campaign.

"We are very excited to see Mickey Lewis join the Union Bulldog family for the next four years," commented Union head coach Sean Gillespie.

"He adds to an already strong freshmen class for next year. His ability to get the ball up the floor and to the rim will be a great fit for what we are doing in our system. As a 6-3 point guard he does a great job seeing the floor, pushing the ball to the rim and kicking the ball around to the open teammates. Not only are we getting a very good basketball player but a very supportive family. We are excited for he and his family as Mickey gets to pursue his dream of playing collegiate basketball."
