Red Hawks men’s hoops signs West Caldwell’s Isbell

HICKORY, N.C. — The Catawba Valley Community College men's basketball program announces the signing of West Caldwell standout Anthony Isbell.

The 6-0, 165-pound guard averaged 21.7 points, 3.1 assists, 5.8 rebounds and 2.4 steals per game this past season for the Warriors, helping lead them to a 22-5 overall record, 11-3 mark in Northwestern Foothills Athletic 2A games and an appearance in the 2A playoffs.

Isbell was named first team all-conference and was also the Most Valuable Player of the Chick-Fil-A Shootout hosted by West Caldwell — all while maintaining a 3.5 grade point average in the classroom. This week, he was named a member of the District 11 second team by the North Carolina Basketball Coaches Association.

Isbell joins a Red Hawks men's basketball program that finished its season with a 22-9 overall record and 16-6 mark in Region 10 play.

CVCC, which closed 2019-20 on a seven-game win streak, also finished second in the conference standings and were only one of two teams in the conference to win 20 or more games during the regular season.
