Men's Basketball Inks Hagerstown CC Guard Tione Womack

Guard Tione Womack

April 19, 2012

HOUSTON - Hagerstown Community College guard Tione Womack became the latest member of the University of Houston men's basketball team's nationally ranked signing class when he signed his National Letter of Intent on Thursday afternoon.

At 6-foot-1, 170 pounds, Womack will have two years of eligibility remaining with the start of the 2012-13 season. He becomes the fifth member of the Cougars' signing class.

"We are excited to have Tione join our program. He has been a proven winner everywhere he has competed, and we look forward to his leadership on our team," head coach James Dickey said. "Tione has a pass-first mentality that creates easy scoring opportunities for his teammates and is a quick, solid on-ball defender."

Womack, whose name is pronounced Tee-On Woe-Mack, joins the Cougars after a two-year career at Hagerstown Community College. Playing for head coach Barry Brown, he helped lead the Hawks to a combined 54-11 record during this stint there.

As a sophomore in 2011-12, Womack averaged 10.0 points with a staggering 221 assists, an average of 7.6 per game. He led HCC to a 28-5 overall record and dished out double-digit assists in 10 games with five consecutive contests late in the season. Included in that streak was a career-high 15-assist performance against Northern Virginia CC.

In mid-February, he helped lead the team to a 78-74 win against Cecil JC for the Maryland state JUCO championship and was named the state tournament's Most Valuable Player.

On the defensive side, Womack grabbed 3.1 rebounds per game and swiped 2.9 steals per contest to lead the Hawks.

In his first season at HCC, the Baltimore native averaged 12.5 points and 6.1 assists in 15 games as the Hawks went 26-6. Making his junior college debut, Womack scored 23 points with 10 assists and five steals in a win against Globe Institute of Technology.

Womack entered Hagerstown CC following an award-winning prep career at Randallstown High. During his final three seasons, he led the Rams to a 73-8 record and averaged 12.5 points, 6.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game as a senior. With numbers like that, he was an easy pick for the All-Metro First Team.

 

 

As a senior in the state semifinals, he scored nine points with seven assists and four steals to spark a 71-42 rout of Wicomico. Womack led the Rams to four consecutive state finals during his prep career, including a pair of state championships.

Womack joins forwards Danuel House (6-7, 195, Hightower HS) and Danrad "Chicken" Knowles (6-10, 190, Homeschool Christian Youth Association), center Valentine Izundu (6-10, 215, Lamar Consolidated HS) and guard Brandon Morris (6-0, 185, Kansas City Kansas CC) as the newest members of the Cougar program.

AMONG THE BEST
Prior to Womack's signing, the Cougars' signing class was rated in the nation's top 20 by three media organizations. Houston stands at No. 14 by Rivals.com, at No. 18 by ESPN and at No. 20 by Scout.com.

Both House (No. 15) and Knowles (No. 56) are ranked among the ESPNU 100. With their signing, the Cougars now have four student-athletes from that national list, joining freshman forward TaShawn Thomas (No. 92 in 2011) and redshirt freshman guard Joseph Young (No. 98 in 2010).
