EASTON, Mass. — Anyone who has been there knows that college is completely different than high school.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t excel at both.
Ryan Logan has figured out how to do that on the basketball court. The 2013 Fredericktown High School grad, who dominated the game in the Mid-Buckeye Conference, is now doing the same at Stonehill College.
“It’s been interesting,” Logan recently told the News when reflecting on his time as a college freshman. “It’s been fun. It’s a new experience.”
The former two-time MBC Player of the Year and All-Area Boys Basketball Player of the Year is now one of the Skyhawks’ top players. He’s currently tied for the team lead in scoring (11.5 points per game) and leads the Northeast-10 Conference in three-point shooting (11-for-19, 57.9 percent). Logan is averaging 7.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists and just under a steal per game.
Earlier this week, Logan was named the Northeast-10 Rookie of the Week for a league-leading third time, after scoring 17 points in his team’s 72-66 loss at Chestnut Hill.
“I’m trying to be the best all-around player I can be,” Logan said. “Every day, I try to work on everything I have, all my skill sets. There’s no one thing to work on.”
It’s not too surprising that Logan is doing well at the NCAA Division II school. He averaged a double-double (23.0 points, 11.7 rebounds) in his final season at Fredericktown, and he led the area in steals (2.8) and blocks (3.0) per game. Over his high school career, he was named First Team All-District twice and established a school record for points (1,501). But the college game is a lot different, as Logan quickly found out.
