Hoops: Ex-Dwyer star Vic Adams commits to St. Peter’s 

By Jeff Greer

Vic Adams shot his way into conversations about Palm Beach County’s best basketball players during his time at Dwyer and Cardinal Newman.

Adams, a 6-foot-3 Class of 2011 guard, earned his reputation as a streaky shooter with serious potential for big points production. He didn’t qualify for Division I hoops out of high school, but after two years at Dodge City (Kan.) Community College, Adams is ready to make the leap. This week, he committed to St. Peter’s, a Division I program in Jersey City, N.J. Tulsa also expressed interest in Adams.

Adams averages 18.1 points a game over about 22 minutes. Never a shy shooter, Adams also attempts more than 15 shots a game. Adams emerged as Dwyer’s top shooting threat during his 2010-11 senior season, helping the Panthers to a 32-1 record, a Class 5A state championship and a win in ESPN’s National High School Invitational.

St. Peter’s, which plays in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, is 8-18 this year and last in the MAAC, but the Peacocks did have one of the NCAA’s most prolific scorers in Keydren Clark, who scored more than 3,000 career points and won the NCAA scoring title twice.
