Hall Call for Local Star

20 Jan

Local Legend Tyrone “T-Bone” Foster has been inducted in the Trinity Valley Community College Hall of Fame. T-Bone starred at Woodlands HS in the early 90’s before finishing up at the Harvey School. He teamed up with another local legend Danya Abrams at Woodlands. T-Bone went onto to TVCC and then Olahoma and finally finished up at Southwest Louisanna State. Congrats to Tyrone and his family. We look forward to bringing T-Bone back to TDYCC where he grew up and made his mark on the Westchester basketball community. Here is a write up on his induction:

Foster: “Still the holder of six school records, Foster is one of the most dominant guards in Cardinal basketball history. He is the record holder for consecutive free throws in a game (15), career three-pointers (149), best career three-point percentage (41.5), assists in a game (17), assists in a season (288) and assists in a career (463).

Foster directed the Cardinals to a 30-8 record in the 1994-95 season, which represents the last 30-win season for the men’s basketball program. The Cardinals finished eighth that year at the national tournament. He was first-team All-America as a sophomore in 1995 and was twice named all-conference.

Foster played one season at Oklahoma University, where he averaged 10.5 points per game and helped the Sooner reached the NCAA Tournament. Foster played one season at the University of Louisiana. At Louisiana, he averaged 16.0 points per game and shot 42.5 percent from three-point range, helping the Ragin’ Cajuns to the Sun Belt Tournament championship and earning him all-conference honors.”
