Eric Readman, a back-up point guard for the 2014 NAIA National Champion Indiana Wesleyan basketball team, has recently decided to transfer to Cornerstone University to continue his education and basketball career. Readman appeared in 31 games for the Wildcats and averaged 3 PPG in nine minutes of action. Readman shot 45% from the floor and 79% from the line during his freshman campaign. He had a season-high nine points versus #3 Indiana-Southeast on November 13. Readman scored four points a week earlier against his new team (Cornerstone) in the WHAC/Crossroads championship game.
Readman finished the last two seasons of his high school career at Fenton High School where he was a teammate with CU's Cory Cox. Readman and Cox were instrumental in leading their team to back-to-back conference titles and an overall record of 43-4 during their two seasons together. They also captured a District Title during their senior year. The two friends will once again be reunited as teammates – this time as Golden Eagles.
Readman averaged 12 PPG and 5 APG as a junior. His 112 assists that year established a new single-season record at FHS. He was named to the Flint Metro All-Conference 2nd Team following the 2011-12 season.
As a senior, Readman averaged 19 PPG and 4 APG and garnered several post-season honors for his efforts. The 6-3 guard was named both Flint Metro Player of the Year and Tri-County Player of the Year. Readman was also named to the Bank Hoops All-State 4th Team and The Detroit Free Press All-State 6th Team. His 444 points during the 2012-13 campaign currently ranks second at Fenton High School for total points for a single season. Readman also dished out 96 assists (2nd All-time) that year and set another school record with his 64 steals. He scored a career-high 30 points in the first round of the District Tournament game versus Holly on March 4, 2013.
Coach Elders on Eric: "Eric is an outstanding player who will be a great fit for our program. He has very good size at 6-3 for a guard. Eric is a versatile player and we will be able to use him at both the point and off-guard positions. He's tough, physical and a tremendous competitor. Eric will bring a year of college experience to our team, which will be a bonus. He knows how to win and I love the fact that he hates to lose."
Eric on his decision about Cornerstone: "I Chose Cornerstone because of the winning tradition of the program. I like the Christ-centered feel of the school and the fact that it's in a bigger city. I also know a lot of people in the area and it's not too far from home."
