"Billy is one of the hardest working kids I've ever seen," said Phoenix coach Ryan Tozer. "He is a pure shooter and gritty on-ball defender."

Cassidy currently leads Friends' Central with 51 three-pointers and is second on the team with 15.8 points per game.

"They have a great coaching staff and I feel blessed that I can continue to play basketball for four more years," Cassidy said.
