Terrence Boyd Knights’ star

Everyone has struggles and obstacles to overcome in order to accomplish their goals in life. For City College’s Terrence Boyd, those struggles involved not only his personal life but his basketball career as well.
Boyd was ranked as high as No. 54 in the high school top 100 players by rivals.com while in high school. After finishing his first two years of high school in Oklahoma, Boyd was ruled ineligible for his junior year in Oklahoma and then again in San Diego after it was discovered that Boyd’s mother had received monetary benefits from a third party.
Even though Boyd did not play for two years, espn.com called him “a strong athletic wing guard . a beast in transition where his strength and athleticism are unstoppable.”
Boyd was highly recruited out of high school and ended up committing to Western Kentucky over Oregon State and the 2011 National Champion, University of Connecticut. Just before the start of the college season, Western Kentucky head coach Ken McDonald released a statement saying that Boyd was no longer part of their program, which would eventually lead to Boyd becoming a Knight.
As a sophomore at City College this year, Boyd averaged 22 points, 11 rebounds and 2 steals per game. His best game was coming in a road victory over rival Mesa College in which he tallied a double-double while scoring 40 points and grabbing 15 rebounds.
The Knights would end up with a 17-10 overall record and 11-5 conference record, which netted the Knights a second place finish in the conference, narrowly leaving them out of the playoffs. Boyd’s impressive contribution to the Knights this season did not go unnoticed; he was named to the first team, all-state.
