Georgetown College Adds Louisville Transfer Trent Gilbert, Two Others for 2015-16

Georgetown College has added three more players, including Louisville transfer Trent Gilbert, for the 2015-16 season. 

The Tigers have also added Terry Rose from Grambling State University and Devon Rowan from Kaskaskia College.

Rowan played high school basketball at North Oldham High School.

Here's a release from GC:

Georgetown College men's basketball coach Chris Briggs is rounding out his 2015-16 roster. The fifth year coach has added three transfers to the already solid list of players and looking for maybe one or two more.

"This is a great collection of players and athletes who are dedicated to working hard at every phase and wanting to be successful," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "The three newest additions are Trent Gilbert, Terry Rose and Devon Rowan."

Gilbert is a name Georgetown fans should know well from his days of leading Scott County High School. The finalist for the 2014 Mr. Kentucky Basketball averaged 26.1 points per game and signed to play for University of Louisville. After a year, he is ready to help his hometown team.

"Trent has always been on our radar, he is such a great shooter and smart basketball player," Briggs said. "He learned a lot in his freshman season under Coach (Rick) Pitino. We are very excited to have him in the Orange & Black now."

Gilbert finished as the all-time leading scorer at SCHS with 2,759 points and follows in the footsteps of former Scott County standouts to return to Georgetown for the Tigers. In most recent history Matt Walls and Rodney Haddix.

Rose, a native of Florida, comes to GC by way of Grambling State University. The 6-foot-4 guard garnered first-team All-County and All-State his senior year while averaging 25.1 ppg.

As a freshman at Grambling, Rose played in 28 games and averaged 13.7 ppg.

"Terry is another great shooter that will help to stretch the floor for us," Briggs said. "He is a talented scorer, earning SWAC freshman of the year honors a few seasons ago. I really like the way our guard situation is shaping up for this coming season."
