His season high came against Louisville Seneca when he scored 28 points.
After transferring from Boone County High School after his sophomore year Flannery played in all 68 games for Scott County his junior and senior seasons and scored over 500 points for the Cardinals. He was named to the 42nd District All-Tournament Team and was the 2010 Central Bank Classic MVP. He was also a member of the 2010 Toyota Classic All-Academic Team.
Head Coach Will Shouse commented on the commitment, “We are very excited to add a shooter like Austin to our team. Anytime you can add a player from a program the caliber of Scott County it is obviously a plus. Coach Hicks has developed a winning mentality at Scott County and we think Austin will bring that with him and make it contagious throughout our program.”
Coach Shouse added, “Austin is going to be a great fit at Asbury. He’s got great character and will fit in with not only our team but also our campus. We are very eager to get Austin here in the fall and expect him to help to continue to elevate our program.”
Flannery will formally sign with Asbury on May 5th. He chose the Eagles despite interest from Northern Kentucky and Walsh (Ohio) among other schools.
