Central Michigan’s Luke Meyer has been selected to participate in the Reach USA Friendship Tour of the Far East.
Meyer, a 6-foot-10 ½ forward, will join nine other players from around the country on the tour, during which the American squad will play eight games over a two-week period against various professional teams in Asia.
“I’m very excited about learning a new culture and seeing an entirely different part of the world,” said Meyer, who is a senior-to-be at CMU who hails from Addison. “I have never been that far away from home. I know that it will benefit me and help me grow as an individual both on and off the court.
“It will be very interesting to see how the game is played in a different part of the world.”
Meyer, a product design major who carries a 3.23 grade point average, has started every game of his CMU career and has been named to the Academic All-Mid-American Conference in each of the past two seasons.
He averaged 5.8 points and 4.8 rebounds per game last season, when the Chippewas finished 16-16. He was second in the team with 36 blocks.
For his career, Meyer has appeared in 97 games, and is averaging 6.6 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. He ranks ninth in program history with 88 career blocks.
