One of only two seniors on the team, Adam will be looking to pick up the slack after losing five seniors last year, including the seven-footer Sam Buckley.

Buckley led last season's team averaging a double-double of 16.3 points and 10 rebounds.

Through five games this season, Adam has kept that pace and that is why he is a Tom Lane State Farm Athlete of the Month for Civic Memorial.

In the first five games of this young season Adam has racked up 82 points, averaging 16.4 a game and is the team's best three-point shooter having made 10-of-28 for a 36-percent shooting average.

"He is definitely our No. 1 go-to guy," CM second-year head coach Lee Green said of Adam. "I expect him to have a great season."

Adam had a season-high game of 21 points in a 69-66 win over Freeburg in the final game of the Roxana Hoopsgiving Tournament on Nov. 25. That night he was an efficient 9-of-11 from the free throw line.

Basketball runs in the Ogden family as Adam's sister Marley, a sophomore, has been lighting it up so far this season as well.

She's eclipsed 71 points and has put down 19 three-pointers, a team-high. The Lady Eagles are 7-0 on the season.
