Wilkerson sees first collegiate action for UT Tyler


SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Collin Wilkerson, a freshman out of New Summerfield, got his feet wet as a collegiate player on Wednesday evening.

Now a member of the University of Texas-Tyler (NCAA, Division II) Patriot basketball squad, Wilkerson played nine minutes in the team's first exhibition game of the season.

In that contest, Utah of the Pac 12 Conference, beat the Patriots, 88-47, before a crowd of 7,994 at the Huntsman Center in Salt lake City.

Wilkerson played nine minutes and hauled in one rebound. He shot five times, but didn't connect.

UT-Tyler will make the short trek up to Provo to take on Brigham Young University in a Friday exhibition affair.
