2018 Campbell guard Kiya Randolph is embracing leadership.
The 6’3″, 175-pounder plans to be the top leader as the team’s lone senior. He says he wants to make himself and his teammates better.
He’s fresh off a junior season where he averaged 9.6 points per game. Randolph’s top performance came in a win over Hardy Memorial. He scored a career-high 21 points on 9-of-10 shooting from the field while grabbing nine rebounds.
“I learned a lot last year, specifically that you don’t always have to have the talent to compete against the best teams and how to cope with not being the go-to player,” Randolph told Prep Hoops Georgia. “My rebounding and mid-range shot has grown tremendously since last year.”
This summer, Randolph finished out his travel career with the Georgia Stars B team. He’s played for them over the past four years, calling it a good experience.
At age 10, basketball started for him. He’s spent the summer and start of the pre-season workouts getting stronger in the weight room. Randolph pointed to his defense, hustle, mid-range jumper and ability to get to the basket as his biggest strengths. He’s working hard to improve his 3-point shot and post game.
No offers have come yet for Randolph, but he’s drawn interest from Wofford, Middle Tennessee State and Albany State.
He knows he has to be a leader for the Spartans, so expect the pressure to make Randolph a better player and person this fall.
