“If you can shoot the basketball you’ll always have an opportunity, and Chris can certainly do that,” said Pikeville College Coach Kelly Wells. “We’re excited about bringing Chris to our campus and adding him to the Bears Basketball family.”
Noble becomes the second Perry Countian to sign with the Bears this off-season. Hazard guard Josh Whitaker joined the team earlier this month.
Noble scored 1,112 points in his career. As a junior he averaged 12 points a game after tossing in 14 per outing as a sophomore. He hit the radar his sophomore season when he went 9-of-12 from the arc and scored 33 points in the 2008 14th Region tournament in a game against Powell County.
