Love Bettis had one heck of a sophomore campaign a season ago.
The 2020 guard averaged 21.6 PPG for Tate, scoring over 10 points in all 25 games for the Aggies (14-11). He had 17 games with 20 or more points and three 30 point performances.
A 6’0″, 150-pounder has no offers yet but has generated interest from Arizona State and Liberty.
Bettis said his 10th grade season went well individually.
“Being a top 3 scorer in the area as a sophomore but as a team, I believe we could have done better. Going into the districts playoffs as the number one seed and getting upset in the first game was a big disappointment,” Bettis told Prep Hoops. “I saw big improvements in my ability to score and my on-ball defense. I’m really excited about the great opportunity we have as a team to go deep in the playoffs this year.”
He started his summer off with Team CP25 and then later moved over to the Alabama Fusion on the EYBL circuit.
“I wasn’t able to perform to my ability because of weakness in my right arm which I later found out was caused by a condition I had called cubital tunnel syndrome,” Bettis said. “I had surgery on my right arm in September and I am now recovering very well getting stronger every day.”
Bettis pointed out his work ethic, ability to score and overall knowledge of the game as his biggest strengths. He says he wants to improve on becoming a better floor general and controlling the flow of the offense.
Look for Bettis to continue to put in the work and excel at a high level for Tate. He’s a smart and well-equipped guard who is looking to make a name for himself and his program. It should be a fun junior year overall.
