It’s always good to have a Lewis or Clark on hand when you start on an expedition. Luckily for Elizabethton, it has the latter.
Zeke Clark is hoping to help lead the Cyclones to the big dance despite being only a junior.
The lightening quick point guard is currently averaging 11.8 points, six assists and two steals per contest. His emergence as one of the top point guards in Northeast Tennessee has been a welcome addition after the graduation of Lees-McRae redshirt freshman Justin Wandell.
“Zeke is the type of player that not only wants to get better, he wants to perfect things,” said Elizabethton head coach Lucas Honeycutt. “He’s been in the gym a lot more and he’s worked hard to improve his game. We’ve worked on his shot, and that’s helped him. He’s a good defender and he’ll always ask to guard our opponent’s top offensive player, but we’re fortunate that he doesn’t have to. We need him to play a lot of minutes for us. He usually ends up drawing their top secondary player. And he always seems to do a good job of shutting them down.”
