McKendree University freshman Eric Hobbie is hot on Matt Laur's trail.
While Laur, a South Central grad who is currently an assistant coach at Missouri Southern State University, has not been a McKendree basketball player for years. In the last 10 years, no Bearcat player had a more successful freshman season than Laur.
So far, Hobbie has scored 202 points in his first dozen college games, an average of 16.8 points per game. Laur, who grew 4 inches during his time at McKendree, averaged 17.4 points per game during his freshman season.
