Career highlights and awards

Adam Michael Flagler (born December 1, 1999) is an American college basketball player for the Baylor Bears of the Big 12 Conference. He previously played for the Presbyterian Blue Hose.

High school career

Flagler grew up playing baseball, football and basketball. He played basketball at Duluth High School in Duluth, Georgia.[1] Flagler left as the school's all-time leader in points (1,300) and three-pointers (227).[2] He was a two-time all-county selection.[1] He committed to playing college basketball for Presbyterian, the only NCAA Division I program to offer him a scholarship.[3]

College career

On November 19, 2018, Flagler scored a career-high 29 points, making seven three-pointers, in an 80–65 loss to UCLA.[4] As a freshman at Presbyterian, he averaged 15.9 points and 3.4 rebounds per game, scoring the most points by a freshman in program Division I history. Flagler earned Big South Freshman of the Year honors and was a five-time Big South Freshman of the Week, a conference record.[5] After the offseason departure of head coach Dustin Kerns, he transferred to Baylor and sat out for one year due to transfer rules. During his redshirt year, Flagler improved his all-around game by practicing against Jared Butler, Davion Mitchell and MaCio Teague. As a sophomore, he assumed a sixth man role for Baylor, which finished with a 28–2 record and won the first National Championship in school history.[1]
