Basketball star Vic Adams transfers back to Dwyer from Cardinal Newman 

By Jeff Greer

Cardinal Newman had a star in Vic Adams, a sharp-shooting guard who averaged 19.3 points a game this past season. But Adams, who originally transferred to Cardinal Newman from Dwyer before the 2009 school year, is headed back to his old stomping grounds.

Adams wrote that he was “Dwyer bound!” on his Facebook page on Friday and confirmed his move on Monday. Former Cardinal Newman coach Brian Mullican, who coached Adams this past season but took an assistant coaching job at Palm Beach State about a month ago, understood Adams’ reasons for switching schools.

“I think it’s a good move,” Mullican said. “It obviously hurts Cardinal Newman, but it makes sense for Vic.”

The chance to play for Dwyer in bigger tournaments with more exposure was a big draw, Adams said.

Adams made the Palm Beach Post’s All-Area small schools team after last season, thanks in large part to his bagging 56 three-pointers. He adds another scoring threat to an already-stacked Dwyer team, which returns two-sport star Jacoby Brissett and 10 other players who played for the Panthers’ final four team last season.
