CARY — Brandon and Marques Oliver, two seniors at Panther Creek, signed with Delaware State this week.

“We picked [Delaware State] because it’s a division one school, and we wanted to play some real good competition," Marques said on the phone Friday night. "Their schedule looked pretty good."

The two brothers have played together for a long time, and the fact that they could stay together was a factor in their decision.

“It’s going to be real cool. We’ve played together all our lives and its going to be even better in college," Marques said.

Marques also said Delaware State offers the majors each of the twins want to pursue. According to Marques, he plans to major in business while Brandon will major in mechanical engineering.

Marques, a 6-foot-6 forward averaged 13-points and 8.5-rebounds per game for the Catamounts last season. At 6-foot, Brandon averaged 4-points per game, and was the floor general at the point for the 28-3 squad.

Both players were named to the Tri-Eight All-Conference first team. Teammate Earnest Ross, who is going to Auburn next season, was the conference's Player of the Year, and head coach L.J. Hepp, who is now the director of basketball operations at South Carolina, was the conference's Coach of the Year.

Marques was also named to the N.C. Basketball Coaches Association District 5 All-District second team. Ross and Hepp were named district Player and Coach of the Year.

Panther Creek won the regular season Tri-Eight Conference title, and also won the conference tournament for the second consecutive season in just their third year of existence. The Catamounts were N.C. High School Athletic Association 4-A sectional champions, and advanced to the regional semifinals where they lost to Jack Britt.

Both brothers were a part of the inaugural senior class at Panther Creek.
