Juco guard commits to Chicago St.

By Scott Powers

Triton junior college sophomore guard Oscar Macias committed to Chicago State on Thursday.

The 6-foot-4 Macias chose Chicago State over interest from Tennessee-Martin, Arkansas-Little Rock and TCU. Macias previously starred at Morton High School in Cicero, Ill.

“You can tell the program is coming up,” Macias said. “That was the reason I jumped on it right away. [Chicago State coach Tracy Dildy] told me we’re going to do something special, and I believe him.

“He said he needed a big point guard who can come in and score and distribute. I feel like I can do that.”

Macias is averaging 15 points for Triton, which is 25-5 this season.
