Tioga County Sports Report
OWEGO — Two-sport standout Evee Coleman will continue her basketball career at Binghamton University following her graduation from Owego Free Academy in 2021.
In an announcement on Twitter Sunday, the junior said, "I am extremely honored and excited to announce my commitment to continue my athletic and academic career at Binghamton University."
Coleman was instrumental in the Indians' run to the Section IV Class B girls basketball championship game in 2019 and the Class B semifinals this past season — despite an off-season knee injury which kept her off the volleyball court last fall. Owego went 19-2 and 13-7, respectively, during the past two seasons
A forward, she averaged a double-double this past season with 20.2 points and 13 rebounds per game. She also averaged 2.9 blocks, 2.1 steals and 1.9 assists per contest.
Coleman is a two-time New York State Sportswriters Association all-state pick and a two-time STAC Metro all-star, as well as a two-time All-Tioga County Defensive Player of the Year and two-time All-Tioga County first-team selection. She was also named one to the All-Tioga County girls top 10 'Athletes of the Winter' and the Basketball Coaches Association of New York Section IV all-star team.
She didn't hold back in her tweet as she doled out credit to all those who have helped her attain the most recent milestone in her career.
"First, I would like to thanks my family for always supporting me and sacrificing a lot of their time to drive and watch me play basketball throughout my years of playing.
"I would like to thank my coaches, Mike Constantine, Rob Baxter and Luke McEvoy for always believing in me and helping me achieve my goal of becoming a Division I athlete.
"Thank you to all my teammates and friends that have pushed me and helped me become the person and player I am today.
"Lastly, I would like to thank all the coaching staff at Binghamton University for making my dreams come true."
The Bearcats are coming off a season in which they went 22-9 overall — and will graduate just three players.
