Chatt Tech's Quinton Wood Signs With Reinhardt University
Chattahoochee Tech guard Quinton Wood signed to play at NAIA Division II Reinhardt University on Tuesday. Wood joins Jeffrey Pourchier’s Eagles squad after one season at CTC, averaging nine points and three rebounds per game while shooting 34 percent from three-point range. He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining for the four-year school in Waleska, Ga.
“We are very proud for Quinton,” said Chattahoochee Tech head coach David Archer. “After a bit of a slow start at the beginning of the season, he came on strong and really began to display the qualities he possesses as a basketball player, both offensively and defensively. He will have an opportunity to immediately contribute for Coach Pourchier’s program at Reinhardt.”
Wood, a 5-11 combo guard, starred at Coosa High School in Rome, Ga., before playing his freshman season at Volunteer State Community College in Gallatin, Tenn. He redshirted at Iowa Central Community College before playing his sophomore year with the Golden Eagles. Wood helped the CTC team to a 17-13 overall record and Region XVII playoff berth in its first season as an National Junior College Athletic Association member program. He was one of the region leaders in three-point shooting.
“I’m excited that he’s versatile, he can play multiple positions,” Pourchier said. “As a coach, that’s what you look for. He can play the point guard, he can play the scoring guard. But more importantly he gets after it on the defensive end with those long arms, which, the way we play, will help us out.”
Wood joins a Reinhardt squad that went 16-15 in 2010-11, losing by just one point to Union College (Kent.) in the Appalachian Athletic Conference tournament title game. He follows former Chattahoochee Tech player Ishmael John, who recently finished his senior season with Reinhardt and made first-team all-AAC.
“I’m excited for it and ready to get started for next year,” Wood said of his opportunity with Reinhardt.
Chattahoochee Tech is a Division I NJCAA school playing in the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Conference.
