St. Pius’ Boyer commits to St. Ambrose

St. Pius boys basketball star Eli Boyer is will be playing the game in college.

Boyer announced Friday that he will be playing at St. Ambrose University next season.

Boyer says when it came to picking a place to go to school and play hoops for 4 years, the Fighting Bees made it easy.

Boyer averaged 13 points per game in his final season for the Lancers, powering Pius to its first district championship since 2006.

Boyer says playing at a high level has always been a priority, because he was shooting for a college career since he first picked up a ball.

Boyer says he learned plenty in his time in Festus and made plenty of memories.

Boyer was named to the JCAA Small School All-Conference team.
St. Ambrose went 16-15 overall last season and 12-10 in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference of the NAIA.
