One From the Vault: Brian Snider

Brian Snider traveled South on 131 from Cadillac to Kalamazoo after graduating in 2002. At Western Michigan he started for three years, including on the 2004 NCAA tournament team, and finished fourth all-time for assists in the Broncos’ record book.

Brian Snider  6-5  Jr  2G  Cadillac: A number of fine guards have come from Up North recently, like Trevor Huffman (Petoskey/Kent State), Jason Rozycki (Boyne City/Oakland), John Flynn (Petoskey/Grand Valley) and Luke Johnson (Gaylord/CMU). Snider is bigger both physically and in reputation at the same age. He plays like a taller, left-handed Dane Fife, he competes and defends. A true triple threat from the free throw line extended. Snider’s a crafty faker with the vision to pass and the body to finish plays. He’s dangerous from three-point range though he doesn’t yet bring an entire game out to that perimeter. MVP of the 16U AAU state tournament playing for the GR Storm. Also plays nationally for the Storm 17U.
