Bloomfield Hills’ Cameron Dalton Headed to South Beach for Barry University

2 Jun

IMG_0699Bloomfield Hills senior Cameron Dalton has a reputation for switching basketball shoes each game the same way Michigan’s climate changes.  For college, Dalton will still have the opportunity for grabbing the latest sneakers, but won’t have to worry about the weather so much.

Because he’s going to South Beach.

The 6’0″ shooting guard committed to Barry University, a Division II school located in Miami Shores, Florida.  Dalton averaged 17 points per-game last season.

“I didn’t really have a lot of schools looking at me because of the way my school team’s season went,” said Dalton.  “I had very little schools looking at me, but I wanted to go college out-of-state, somewhere warm, so that’s why I picked Barry.”

Dalton’s last season was a disappointing 6-14.  The team graduated a plethora of seniors that contributed to a 24 win campaign a year earlier and a spot in the 2014 Class A state championship game.  Still, Dalton learned the importance of becoming a leader both on and off the floor.

“Losing a lot was something new to me,” said Dalton.  “It was a hard task trying to stay positive all the time.”

However, he doesn’t envision to see much losing in college.  Barry is one year removed from a 25 win campaign and a trip to second round of the NCAA tournament.  Winners attract winners, and Dalton claims he is an ideal fit for the Bucs’ style of play with stellar range of consistency with his perimeter jump shot.

“I would say I’m pretty good at putting the ball in the basket,” added Cameron.  “Barry needed a shooter and I think that’s what I’m best at.”
