SOUTHWEST SIGNS POWER FORWARD FROM MASSACHUSETTS
Release written by Keith Gentry

Southwest men’s basketball coach Verties Sails, Jr. has announced the signing of 6’8”, 245-pound Richard Lively to a national letter of intent. A prototypical power forward, Lively was a three-year letterman for coach Dick Arieta at Silver Lake Regional High School in Kingston, Massachusetts, where he averaged 15 points and 12 rebounds per game. A two-year starter in high school, Lively led Silver Lake to the Division 1 state quarterfinals.
