Arizona Reid - College


A 6'5" power forward for the Panthers, Reid is undersized and relies on his drive to get to the boards over players that have been a half a foot taller than him.

In the 2007-2008 season, he became the first player in Big South history to reach the 1,800 point/900 rebound club. On February 18, 2008, Reid became the all time leader rebound leader in Big South Conference history when he grabbed his third rebound against Coastal Carolina. Days later he joined an elite NCAA club of 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in a collegiate career. At the close of the 2007-08 basketball season, Reid is only one of fewer than 100 men's players to ever achieve these milestones together.

On February 24, 2007, in High Point's final regular season game, Reid finished with a career-high matching 32 points and a personal best 25 rebounds vs. Virginia Military Institute. The 25 boards set a new Big South Conference single game record, previously held by Charleston Southern’s Tony Fairley (1987) and Coastal Carolina University’s Moses Sonko (earlier that season). It was also an HPU program Division I record. Reid finished the 2006-07 season with a league leading 13 double-doubles.

Arizona led High Point to a school record 22-10 season with his 21.6 points per game and 9.6 rebounds per game during the 2006-07 regular season.

He ranked first in the BSC in rebounds and is the second leading scorer, averaging 21 points and 9 rebounds per game. Reid was one of only two players in the nation to average 21 points and 9 rebounds. (The other player was Kevin Durant)

Monday February 26, 2007 Arizona Reid was named the 2006-07 Big South Conference Player if the Year. (He received 21 first-place votes from the panel and 283 total points.)

    I had a classmate who fitted for college by the lamps of a lighthouse, which was more light, we think, than the University afforded.
