Former Anadarko (Okla.) High School multi-sport standout Curtis Osceola Jr. will be lacing up his sneakers for the Oklahoma City University men’s basketball team this fall.
Osceola is now part of one of the top NAIA programs in the country. The Stars, as they are known, have won six national championships. Osceola, a guard, is one of just two freshmen on a squad that features eight seniors.
The Stars are coming off a 21-11 season and their third straight NAIA Tournament appearance. It was the program’s first 20-win season since 2008.
The 2017-18 season starts Oct. 28 with a home game against Manhattan Christian. The slate includes games against teams from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, New Mexico and Texas.
As an Anadarko senior last season, Osceola averaged more than 10 points per game and earned All-State honorable mention honors in Class 4A. He also excelled as a wide receiver and cornerback in football. He served as a captain in his senior year and finished second on the team in receptions and interceptions.
In July, he played on a team with his fellow Seminoles from Florida at the Native American Basketball Invitational in Arizona.
