2003 Spotlight: Byron Joynes

Despite the lackluster season of Towson Catholic (MD) junior center Byron Joynes, head coach Mike Daniel says that Joynes is going to be a great Division I player.

Joynes Ready For Spring, Summer Tour

Byron Joynes, a 6-9 power forward, and the Owls are having a disappointing season. Averaging 11 points and 8 rebounds per game, Joynes has been faced with the task of leading a very young team, Daniel said. The loss of Carmelo Anthony to Oak Hill Academy really hurt the Owls' chances of making the postseason.

Despite the team's struggles, Joynes continues to improve, both on the court and off.

After the basketball season, Joynes plans to play AAU ball in Baltimore and attend the Nike and Five-Star basketball camps.

Joynes is entertaining many options of schools to attend. Such elite basketball schools as Michigan, Villanova, Maryland, UNC, and Georgetown have come to see him play. Clemson, Georgia Tech, Texas, and Connecticut have also kept their eye on him.

Joynes has visited the nearby campus of Maryland; he has also been to Villanova. Right now, he has made no official decision. Joynes said he is weighing all of his options and will make the choice that best suits him.
