Why Micah Bell, Ball State basketball's lone freshman, can be a surprise for the Cardinals

MUNCIE, Ind. — Micah Bell appears quiet by nature. Following a summer practice, his responses to questions were short and to the point.

A bit unassuming off the court, Bell's game is anything but.

The 6-foot-3 guard signed with Ball State's men's basketball team in May. An Austell, Georgia native, Bell spent a season at Link Year Prep in Branson, Missouri, where he excelled on one of the best post-graduate teams in the nation.

There, Bell averaged 19.3 points — shooting 46.3% from the field, 41.3% from 3 and 83.5% from the free throw line — to go along with 5.
