Trey Minter has his work cut out for him in his upcoming Junior season. Butler just graduated 8 seniors off a team that was ranked in the Top 25 for nearly the entire season. Trey should step into a leadership role on and off the court and will have to carry an increased scoring burden for Coach KC Goodin’s Bears after averaging 6.1 points per game as a sophomore.
Minter is a 6 foot point guard who is a big time shooter and passer. Trey can create off the dribble for himself and others but has struggled to finish through contact due to a lack of upper body strength that he is working on improving in the weight room. Minter’s sophomore season at Butler was cut short with a broken hand. Butler went 27-4 on the year but ended their season on a two game losing streak with losses to Doss (in the district title game) and PRP (in the regional opener). Coach KC Goodin had much praise for Minter, “Trey is a really good teammate who can really shoot the ball! Trey’s savvy and his willingness to take and make the big shot and big plays is what separates him. He’s a 4.0 student and I expect a big Junior season out of him!”
Trey is currently playing AAU with Team Vision 2020 and having a high scoring and successful season. Minter says they have been playing some good competition and winning big games. Last weekend they knocked off the Louisville Legends at the Under Armour Classic before eventually falling to the Ohio Rebels in the quarterfinals. Minter says the AAU season is teaching him how to take over games and preparing him to carry a larger scoring load at Butler this season. While Trey hasn’t had any college interest yet, he looks and plays the part of a scoring combo guard at the next level. If he can accomplish his Junior season goals of winning the 6th region and leading Butler to Rupp, he will certainly work his way on to the radar of college coaches.
