Professional Basketball Player Signs with InterperformancesUSA
WARREN, NJ, February 7, 2017 – Randy Reed, a former standout at the University of Nebraska Omaha, and current professional basketball player competing overseas, has chosen InterperformancesUSA (IPZ) for representation, the company announced today.
Reed plays for Jeunesse Sportive d’El Menzah in Tunisia in the top tier of Ligue 1. Reed has had three 30-plus point games this season, with a career high of 34. The St. Louis, MO, native stands at 6’6, and plays both the guard and forward positions.
Prior to signing his professional contract in late September 2016, Reed was a spark for the UN Omaha Mavericks, shooting 51 percent from the field and 76 percent from the stripe during his senior campaign.
In the 2014-2015 season, as a junior, Reed transferred to Omaha from St. Louis Community College. He was appointed to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Honors Court and was named to the Summit League Academic Honor Roll.
Before becoming a Maverick, Reed earned Third Team All-America Honors from the National Junior College Athletic Association in the 2013-2014 season playing for St. Louis Community College.
“Based on my research, IPZ is both prestigious and professional. I wanted to sign with an agency that has big dreams and goals like I do, as well as an agency that values a family atmosphere,” said Reed. “I was introduced by a long time friend of mine and he has high praise for the agency. I want to thank God for this amazing opportunity.”
“Randy is a physical player who has the ability to take over a game, as he has on several occasions this year,” said Robert Zito, Managing Partner of IPZ. “He is constantly improving and shares the values we share as a company.”
