JERSEY CITY, NJ – Former Saint Peter's men's basketball star and 2017 graduate, Trevis Wyche, has signed a professional international basketball contract to continue his playing career. Wyche inked a deal with Michelin Etha Engomis Nicosia. Etha Engomis is based in Engomi, Cyprus and the club competes in the Cypriot Basketball Division A.
"It definitely feels great to sign my first pro contract because I feel that all of my hard work and dedication paid off," said Wyche when asked about signing his first professional contract. "I went from waking up at 4:30 in the morning in high school to having a great four years at Saint Peter's."
Wyche finished his career as a Peacock with 1,228 career points, 501 career assists, 367 career rebounds, and 168 career steals in 130 games played. A native of Neptune, NJ, he is one of just two Peacocks all-time to score over 1,000 career points, rank in the top five in career assists, and rank in the top 10 in career steals. Wyche is also just the third player in program history to surpass the 500 career assists threshold. He finished his career tied for second all-time in career assists and seventh all-time in career steals. Wyche helped lead Saint Peter's to a second place MAAC regular season finish in 2016-17, the best regular season finish since 1989, and the programs first ever national postseason tournament crown, winning the CIT Championship. Wyche's individual accolades garnered during his time included All-MAAC Second Team honors in 2017 and 2016 and CIT All-Tournament team honors.
"Saint Peter's definitely helped me grow as an individual on and off the court," added Wyche. "Being that Saint Peter's was so diverse, I was able to meet and adapt to different backgrounds that helped me with my communication skills. As a team, we were always preaching having good character and were always held accountable which I feel will really help me as a pro."
Wyche leaves for Cyprus, on September 7.
