Trent Hundley joins UE Men’s Basketball Program


Hundley was a freshman at Rio Grande last season

 EVANSVILLE, Ind. – After completing a solid freshman season at the University of Rio Grande, Trent Hundley has officially transferred to the University of Evansville men’s basketball program.

The 6-foot-6 forward is a native of Mt. Orab, Ohio where he played at Eastern Brown High School.  In his first season of collegiate basketball, Hundley played in 30 games and averaged 9.0 points and 4.4 rebounds.  Hundley was a 44.8% shooter from the field and was nearly as efficient from outside, hitting 40.9% of his 3-point attempts.

“We are excited about the addition of Trent Hundley to our roster.  Trent is another important piece we needed this offseason in order to continue to add perimeter shooting to our roster.  What we like about Trent is that he is a dynamic scorer.  He is very good at making catch and shoot 3’s but he can also put the ball on the floor and get to his spots,” Purple Aces head men’s basketball coach David Ragland exclaimed.  “Trent has good athletic ability and is very capable of having scoring burst.  Trent comes from a family of hard workers, and he has worked extremely hard on his game so that he can produce the way he has since he has been in college.”

“We felt it was necessary to bring more experience to the group of returners we have and Trent fits our roster perfectly.”

On November 19, 2023. Hundley had his first double digit game of the season with 11 against Ohio Christian.  A week later against Miami Univ.-Hamilton, he connected on 7 of his 13 attempts while going 4-of-7 from outside on his way to 18 points.

As the month of January ended, Hundley was at his best.  Between Jan. 31 and Feb. 22, he averaged 14.4 points per game while recording a season-high 20 points against WVU Tech.  For his efforts, he was named to the 2023-24 All-River States Conference Men’s Basketball Second Team.

“I chose Evansville because of the players, we have the potential to be great, I know Evansville has a great staff, and it’s environment is something I’ve dreamed about playing in since I was a kid,” Hundley said.

Hundley completed his high school career with 1,020 career points, 10th in the school record book.
