Sam Hou, the 6’1 point guard out of Western Academy of Beijing is committed to join McGill University. Sam will begin his freshmen year in the fall of 2016 and is the 3rd Global Squad player to commit to McGill in the last 4 years. Not only will Sam have an opportunity to tryout for one of the top basketball programs in Canada, but he will be attending one of the top academic universities in the world.
Sam is coming off his 3rd season with Global Squad where he helped his team to one of their most successful seasons in program history. Sam averaged 8.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game. Sam went for 15 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals, and 2 assists vs The Truth. He also had 14 points and 6 rebounds vs Philly Vipers.
This news is extremely exciting for the Global Squad coaching staff because Sam was a member of the original Global Squad in 2011. Back then the program was in its infancy. We had only one team and 11 players and Sam was just an 8th grader with a dream. He was extremely athletic, but his skills had a long way to go.
Sam’s improvement over the years has been remarkable. He has shown elite dedication to work in the weight room and develop his perimeter skills. Now Sam is on his way to making his college basketball dreams a reality.
