Published 2:32 pm Friday, May 11, 2012

Paul Chukes, Trea Kelly and Dillen Thomas, three senior members of coach Rickey McCullough’s Bainbridge High School Bearcats basketball team, are still considering playing college basketball.

Chukes, a first-team All-Region 1-AAAA selection who led the team in scoring with 368 points and an average of 12.5 point a game, has not yet signed, but McCullough said he plans to attend Chattahoochee Valley Community College in Phenix City, Ala. If Chukes joins Chattahoochee Valley, he will be a teammate of one of his BHS teammates, Rodney Glenn.

Kelly, a second-team All-Region 1-AAAA selection, who led the team with 49 blocks, will sign this summer with either Columbus State University or the University of West Florida.
