Tim Edwards ’10 furthers basketball career

By Middlebury Campus

Tim Edwards ’10,  former co-captain of the most sucessful basketball team in Middlebury history, has recently signed an  agreement to play for SB DJK Rosenheim Basketball Club in Rosenheim, Germany. Rosenheim competes in Germany’s Regionaliga 2.
One of Middlebury’s most decorated basketball players, Edwards was NESCAC defensive player of the year in both his junior and senior seasons, and was named second-team all-NESCAC and third-team all-Northeast after his senior campaign, when he averaged 8.6 points per game and led the league in steals per game with 2.14. Edwards finished his career as the all-time and single-season school record holder in steals in addition to finishing fourth all-time on the assists list.
Edwards was named co-captain of the basketball team last season and promptly led  the Panthers to a school-record 25 wins despite missing the first six games of the year with an injury. The record-setting campaign  saw the Panthers make their second consecutive trip to the NESCAC championship game and third consecutive trip to the DIII NCAA tournament. As a one-seed, the Panthers were able to record the first tournament win in school history in front of their home crowd in Pepin Gym.
The addition of Edwards to the Rosenheim roster is another example of the upward mobility of the Middlebury College basketball team, which has cemented its reputation as an elite New England program with their recent sucsess. Edwards is the third Middlebury alum to continue his basketball career overseas, joining a club that includes Ben Rudin ’09, who plays in Israel, and Evan Thompson ’07, who plays in Denmark. Rosenheim is currently 4-1 and tied for second in their division.
