Oklahoma has had its fair share of talent over the years. Many have seen their dreams come true and went on to play college basketball. Some have even been able to exceed that and play professionally. I want to shine a light on all of the talent that has come through Oklahoma. Every Monday we will showcase the post high school career of one of the many talented Oklahoma basketball players.
This week we are spotlighting Kevin House, a short (5’8), but savvy PG from Oklahoma City. House graduated Putnam City West High School in 2012. Over his stellar 4-year pre career House averaged 20 points and 4 assists per game.
After high school House received many offers at the D-II and NAIA level, but decided to forgo those in order to chase his dream as a D-I athlete. House attended Fort Scott Community College in Fort Scott, Kansas. During his 2 years there House averaged 17 points, 8 assists, and 5 rebounds per game. He also accumulated many awards, being named All-Jayhawk, All-Region First Team, and leading the Greyhounds to a Region VI Championship. He would go on to finish as the schools all-time leader in assists.
As a junior, House chose to attend D-II Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas. His only year there, House averaged 5 points, 6 assists, and 2 rebounds per game. After a less successful junior campaign House decided to transfer to William Woods University (NAIA) out of Columbia, Missouri.
House picked his production back up as a senior averaging 15 points, 7 assists, and 5 rebounds per game. He shot 49% from the field, an insane 48% from 3, and 80% from the FT line. During his 1 year with the Owls House guided the team to a American Midwest Conference Championship as well as receiving Second Team All-Conference honors and being named an NAIA Honorable Mention All-American. During his only season in Columbia, House set the school record for most assist in a season.
House graduated from William Woods University with a degree in Sports Management. After graduation House attended a Eurobasket camp in Las Vegas. He garnered interest from teams in Spain, Portugal, and El Salvador. The teams from Spain and Portugal decided to pick up guards with more experience, so House decided to jump at an opportunity to play professional basketball for Arcense BKB Club in El Salvador.
“I’m really excited to play in El Salvador. It’s a new country to visit, show my talents to new fans, and to continue to play the sport I love. I’m finally a pro basketball player. My Dream finally came true.” Said House.
House is currently training in Missouri preparing to leave for El Salvador in January.
