Menzies to play basketball at Point Park
July 13, 2009
PITTSBURGH – Serra Catholic forward/center Dave Menzies has committed to Point Park University, where he will be a freshman on the Pioneers’ men’s basketball team in the fall.
Menzies is a 6-4 post player who averaged 15.0 points and 8.0 rebounds per game during his senior season at Serra. The McKeesport native was a WPIAL all-section performer and was named to the McKeesport Daily News Fabulous 15 team this past season.
As a starting forward/center last season, Menzies helped the Eagles reach the WPIAL Class A finals and the PIAA quarterfinals. Serra Catholic was 23-4 overall and 9-1 in Section 3-A.
As a junior in 2007-08, Menzies was a key component of the Eagles’ run to the WPIAL championship and the PIAA Class A title.
Menzies joins high school teammate, T.J. Heatherington, in committing to play for the Pioneers. Like Menzies, Heatherington will be a freshman at Point Park this coming year. Heatherington was named all-state each of the last two years as Serra Catholic’s point guard.
