Mountain Heritage graduate John Cannon will finish out his college basketball career with the UNC Asheville Bulldogs. Cannon was a 6-foot-10, 240-pound junior on Georgia's roster last season, but left the team prior to the Southeastern Conference tournament. John said being close to his hometown was a big reason he chose the Big South Conference program over other schools. Cannon will have to sit out the 2014-15 season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules. He finished his career at Mountain Heritage with a state-record 620 blocked shots and had a scholarship offer from UNCA when he chose instead to sign with Georgia in 2011. Cannon will be reunited with former Mountain Heritage teammate Alex Biggerstaff, who is a redshirt freshman forward for UNCA.
