Wayne Selden Nets A Triple-Double In Home Opener

The Tilton Schools Friday night home opener against Notre Dame Prep was in front of a packed house and spectators did not walk away disappointed. After losing the season opener to the Kiski School (PA), the Rams knew losing back to back games would not be acceptable. Kansas commit Wayne Selden put on a triple-double (19pts 18reb 10ast) performance to remember including a one handed tomahawk bang off a lob pass from Johnny Joseph that set the gym on fire.

The big story was Lee Messier, the 6’2 sniper connected on 7-10 shooting from behind the arc to tally up 28 points midway through the contest. Messier finished with 35 points for the game.

Every Tilton Rams player scored at least a point in the 125-79 victory over ND Prep

Wayne Selden To Kansas

Kansas made it a point to land Wayne Selden, and the end of result of their hard work came a commitment from the 6-foot-5 Boston, Ma native who attends the Tilton School (NH).

“Kansas already being my favorite, visiting and feeling a part of something special was the selling point,” said Wayne on his commitment to the Jayhawks.

Selden was accompanied on his recent visit over the weekend to Lawrence, KS with his mother, father and God mother. Selden and his family credit Kansas assistant Norm Roberts for doing a good job recruiting him.

Now with his personal recruitment process out of the way, Selden has some recruiting to do on his own.

“I’m recruiting Julius Randle & Aaron Gordon,” when speaking on potential prospects Wayne is working on getting up Kansas with him. Gordon attended Kansas Late Night Madness with Selden and Julius Randle is scheduled to visit sometime during the season.

Wayne Selden also has a lot more to focus on this year, after losing seven players from last year’s Tilton team and coming back as the only returning starter.

“Now my focus is to have a great high school season and work even harder.”

This past summer, Selden declared that he will be leaving the class of 2014 and will be returning to his original class of 2013. Originally the reason for reclassing was to develop academically and athletically while playing in the NEPSAC, arguably one of the best prep school leagues in the country. Wayne Selden is an early candidate for the 2013 McDonald’s All-American game.
