COA's Fearn signs with Holy Names hoops
Erik Fearn, a sophomore center for the College of Alameda men's basketball team last season, has signed a letter-of-intent with Holy Names.
"I chose Holy Names because it was small and it was local," said the 6-foot-8, 208-pound Fearn, who also said that he will play power forward for the Hawks. "It is a program that will give me an opportunity to play the amount of minutes that I played at Alameda."
Fearn averaged 7.7 points per game and 6.8 rebounds per game for the Cougars. He came to the Bay Area from Gassney, South Carolina, where he played in high school.
