The Pima Community College men’s basketball team added another piece to its backcourt for the 2020-21 season — Josh Ursery, a 6-foot-1 guard from Peoria has committed to play for the Aztecs.

Former Arizona players Ben Davis, Keanu Pinder and Kadeem Allen all played at Hutchison, which plays at the highest level of junior college nationally.

Ursery played his freshman season at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College this season. He played in 30 of their 32 games this season and averaged 4.1 points per game for the Blue Dragons.

Ursery played for Liberty High School where he averaged 26.0 points in his senior season. In his final two years with the Lions, he averaged 22.8 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.7 steals.

“He has experience since he played at a national junior college last year,” Pima men’s basketball coach Brian Peabody said. “He is above the rim and is going to be an impact player in our conference. He’s a slasher and very good in the open court.”
