Chima in now in his fourth season with the Bulldogs...he plays at the 2 spot...has great quickness, can handle the ball, and a good scorer...has been a three year starter for the Bulldogs...reached the 1,000-point mark as a junior and is close to breaking every Union three point record...he already holds the Union record for three-point attempts in a career (679)...led the TranSouth Conference in three-pointers made as a freshman and sophomore with 86 and 88 respectively...selected to the TranSouth All-Conference second team as a sophomore and also named to the TranSouth Conference All-Freshman Team in 2001.
Coach's Comments...Chima has been our best three-point shooter for three years now. He is a player that must be guarded which is a huge help to our inside game.
Before Union...in high school, Chima was the Dallas area leading scorer and the private school player of the year&averaged 26 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals per game&was All-District and All-State his senior year.
