USM Forward Norville Carey Returns to the Virgin Islands

Posted: Updated:

On Wednesday USM dropped its second game of the season to Western Kentucky, but there is no time for the team to hang its head.

Now Southern Miss takes to the British Virgin Islands for two games, starting with Coppin State on Friday night.

However this trip brings a unique element - the return of Norville Carey.

For the first time the sophomore forward gets to play in front of his home country in a Black and Gold uniform.

In the states his skill set is often overshadowed by a deep and talented roster, but come Friday this hometown hero becomes the star of the show.

"Our guy - Norville Carey - he's a folk hero over there," says Southern Miss head men's basketball coach Donnie Tyndall. "People love him and they're so proud of the fact he's one of the few guys that has gotten out of their country and playing at a major Division I school, so I told him the other day when he didn't play much against Georgia St. - if at all - 'if you don't start practicing better, they may try to hang me when we go to the Virgin Islands when I don't put your tail in the game so you better start practicing better'."

"I'm really excited about it - a little nervous - but I'm excited," says Carey. "What I'm looking forward to most is a homecooked meal. I just want to go back and just show them my talents - how I've been progressing over the past year since I've been away from home, so I'll do that when I get back there."
