Kevin Moses Corner: Cole Hicks

Written By: Kevin Moses

Cole Hicks @cole_hicks1 , 6’1″ , 165 , class of 2025 from Boyd County High School, KY is a dynamic game changer that can torch the nets from downtown with a smooth touch. However, he can be electric off the bounce and finish strong at the rim. Cole is a natural play maker with great court vision and a high IQ. He loves fueling his teammates with timely passes. He also mixes it up on the boards effectively. Cole takes a lot of pride in being a defensive stud. He’s tough, gritty and doesn’t mind physical play or being physical himself. Cole enters every game with the purpose and passion to impact the game on both ends doing whatever his team needs to get a win.

Last season, Cole averaged 18 points while shooting 50% from the floor and 37% from 3-point range. He also averaged 3 assists and 3 rebounds per game. In his AAU session, Cole averaged 15 points while shooting 42% , 4 assists, and 4 rebounds per game. The biggest improvements for Cole is being more physical and aggressive with passion for getting more boards, attacking the basket off the bounce and finishing at the rim. He is no longer settling for just being a shooter. Cole’s goals entering the season are to win the region and play in the Sweet 16 at Rupp Arena. With the district championship in hand , he and his team have entered the regional tournament. Along the way, Cole tied the record most 3-pointers in a single game with 10 and has already earned the 16th  region 1st Team. Cole finished the season averaging 15 points while shooting 51.5% from the field and 39% from 3-point range, 4 assists, 3.5 rebounds per game.

What separates Cole is his intense work ethic and willingness to put in that work to keep getting better and stay consistent in that pursuit. Being a dual sport athlete, this is second nature. Also, Cole is very unselfish and wants teams to win over personal recognition. Cole is the perfect point guard with IQ to make game winning decisions without fail. Cole is always a high achiever in the classroom with a 4.1 GPA while taking honors classes.

Cole has the skills, athletic ability and drive to be a D1 prospect. A lower level is an option if the right opportunity presents itself. But he will  continue working to be the best version of himself and keep pursuing  the highest level. Watch him this post season to see how high he can fly.
