They are nineteen games into the season and Racine St. Catherine’s has yet to suffer a loss. A large reason for that that has been the play of their 6’1” junior guard, Tyrese Hunter. Hunter is putting up a stellar season with a stat line of 18.8 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game to help lead the perfection. 

“We lock in everyday and have great practices, we all have been playing with each other for a while now and have a feel for each other’s game. Also, our main focus is locking down on defense,” Hunter commented on the great success so far on the season that has led to the current perfection. When talking about what he and the Racine St. Catherine’s are looking to accomplish this year, Hunter stated, “everybody has that same end goal which is to win state but we take it game by game and don’t look past anyone.” 

Hunter’s stellar season has led to more than just a perfect record, as more and more college coaches are getting involved with him. The most recent his Rick Pitino and the Minnesota Gophers who just offered the junior on Sunday. Other schools to have extended him a scholarship offer include Texas A&M, Bradley, DePaul, Loyola-Chicago, UW-Milwaukee, UIC, Miami (OH), Wright State, etc. among a few others. When talking about what he may be looking for is his future school, Hunter said “a college that I have a great relationship with the head coach, and that wants to help me get better on and off the court.”

As well several high major programs have reached out to Hunter, including one very notable program; Kentucky. When talking about the Wildcats, Hunter said, “It’s a blessing to be recruiting by a school with that history along with all the schools for that matter, but it’s motivation at the same time to keep going harder and never get satisfied.” 

Always looking to improve, Hunter seems primed to close the season in strong fashion before hitting the hardwood in the spring and summer where he promises to be one of the bigger stories of the spring.  He plays with the Phenom University-Team Herro program during the grassroots travel season.
