Hence plays key role for Army

Jeremy Hence
by Tom Hardin

Former Middlesex Youth Basketball League (MYBL) standout Jeremy Hence is getting plenty of playing time this year with the Division I U.S. Military Academy (Army) basketball team.

Hence is the son of Andrew and Carolyn Hence, former teachers in the Middlesex School System. Andrew also was the MHS girls and boys basketball coach for many years. The Hences now live and teach in the Fredericksburg area.

Jeremy played for the Lions Club team in the MYBL as an 8 and 9 year old and was one of the Junior Boys Division’s best players. He would later star at Massaponax High School where he scored 1,041 career points and averaged 23 points per game in his senior year. He earned a basketball scholarship to Army, a member of the Patriot League.

At 6’4”, Jeremy plays small forward for Army and got the starting nod in last Saturday’s nationally-televised loss to Navy. Jeremy had 5 points in the game and hit a 3-pointer.

Jeremy, a junior, recently scored a career-high 11 points in a win over New Hampshire. He made all five of his shot attempts in the game.

He is a systems management major at Army.
