Courtney Sims '03

Class of 2013 


The best basketball player ever to attend Nobles, Courtney played center and forward for the varsity squad. In his senior year, the team finished undefeated in the league for only the second time in Nobles history. He led the team in rebounds and points; his average of 26.6 points per game led the ISL, and he finished second in the ISL in rebounding with 12.6 per game. Courtney received the 1983-84 Basketball Award, and he was co-MVP of the ISL and a Boston Globe All Scholastic. He scored his 1,000th Nobles point on March 1st, 2002, at the end of his second season at Nobles. Courtney was a finalist for the McDonald’s All-American game and one of the top 25 at the Nike All-American camp. 
Then head coach of the varsity basketball team, Michael Herring says, “He could step out of the perimeter and shoot the three. He was adept at posting up on the low block, and he could put the ball on the floor and go by defenders to hit the midrange shot. He had a complete offensive package.” 
Courtney also played one season on the varsity tennis team during his sophomore year. He was undefeated at 3rd singles and was considered one of the best high school players in New England at the time. The Nobles team was a runner-up at the New England championships that year. 
After Nobles, Courtney went on to play basketball at the University of Michigan and continued to play professionally for the Indiana Pacers, the New York Nets, and the Phoenix Suns. Courtney played in Lativa for VEF Riga and is now playing for the Seoul SK Knights in the Korean Basketball League.
