Cherry to be Hired at High Point

South Carolina assistant coach Scott Cherry is expected to be named head coach at High Point tomorrow afternoon. A 2:00pm press conference has been scheduled.

Cherry came to USC from Western Kentucky when Darrin Horn got the job last spring. He played on UNC’s 1993 national Championship team and was on the staff at George Mason during their improbable Final Four run in 2006. His in-state ties and his youth (he’s only 37) seem to be two of the more important factors in this hiring according to a well placed source.
