Hoops: Park Vista F Yephnick Adelphonse signs with juco 

By Jeff Greer

Yephnick Adelphonse just wanted to play college basketball.

On Monday, his wishes came true. The springy 6-foot-4 Park Vista senior signed with Casper College, a junior college in Casper, Wyo.

“Yephnick is a tremendous athlete who is really just scratching the surface of what he is capable of as a basketball player,” said Park Vista coach Drew Quinn. “This will be the first time in his career that he will focus exclusively on basketball, and this young man is going to turn a lot of heads as he continues to develop.”

Adelphonse, also a standout track athlete, averaged 10.1 points and 5.5 rebounds a game for Park Vista, which reached the regional quarterfinals for the first time in program history.
