Parker Rice

Parker Rice continues to provide a lift for Butler County.

The 6-foot-6 senior center is now averaging just shy of 22 points a game for the 16-5 Bears.

Rice, one of only three seniors on the team, scored 28 points on Tuesday in a loss at Muhlenberg County in his second 20-plus point game in less than a week. He led the team with 23 points and had 10 rebounds in a 79-66 win over Caverna on Saturday and had 19 points and seven rebounds the night before that in a 63-58 victory at Whitesville Trinity. Despite being the team’s center, he’s shooting over 36 percent from beyond the arc.

“I try to put a lot on my shoulders,” he said. “I try to make it easy for the team by passing and getting them easy buckets and I look forward to winning.”
