Vermont’s Adiang Makes his Decision
Vermont Academy senior wing Tinga Adiang will continue his basketball career at St. Lawrence University.
The 6-foot-3 southpaw is in his second season at Vermont Academy after transferring from Mount Mansfield High School in Vermont, where he averaged 17 points and 5 rebounds per game.
While Adiang might be best known for his high motor - he plays very hard, is a strong slasher and accomplished defender - his skill set has evolved quite a bit in the last year resulting in a much more consistent perimeter scoring threat.
Nevertheless, "his best asset might be his leadership and passion for the game," according to Vermont Academy head coach Alex Popp, which was perhaps best exemplified by the fact that his teammates voted him a tri-captain for the current season.
Adiang, who also starred at last year's Elite 75 Academic Experience, took several visits to NESCAC and NEWMAC schools before deciding on St. Lawrence.
He becomes the fourth VA product to commit to commit in the class of 2016 joining Bruce Brown (Miami), Tyrique Jones (Xavier) and Patrick Fisher (Winthrop). Vermont Academy headed into the Thanksgiving break with a 2-0 record after defeated Spire Institute 91-74 at the National Prep Showcase and then winning their AA debut over Bradford Christian 111-61.
