Edgewood High boys’ basketball player Thomas Dillard will play next season for Benedictine University-Springfield, a NAIA Division I school in Illinois.

Dillard, a 6-foot-4 guard averaged 13.7 points and 7.2 rebounds last season for the Rams (21-4), who won the UCBAC championship.

“Thomas brings so many different things to the table,” said Benedictine coach Ian McKeithen. “He’s a big guard who can shoot, pass, get to the basket, and defend.”

Dillard will be part of the inaugural season at Benedictine, which will compete in the American Midwest Conference.
