CANTON, MO. (WGEM) -- Chemistry is rarely formed overnight.

It takes time to develop, but when it does the results are easy to see.

That factor alone could be the secret behind Culver Stockton storming onto the hardwood scene this year.

You could say that the elevation of Wildcat hoops started to take form over three years ago, when the starting back court of Marshawn Norris and CJ Adams were paired together at Napoleon high school in Jackson Michigan.

Little did they know that it was just an early chapter in the duo's book of basketball.

"It was really fun in high school, because everyone knew that we were probably the best two in the area. We got all the publicity from people and what not," Wildcats junior guard CJ Adams expressed.

"We had a lot of success in high school," added Wildcats senior guard Marshawn Norris.

"In junior college it was weird playing against each other at first, but playing against each other was a lot of fun as well." 

After a season as rivals at two of Michigan's premiere junior college programs, Norris moved on to Quincy University, while Adams, a year younger remained in Jackson Michigan.

Not until this season would they be reunited in Canton with the Wildcats.

"After (Marshawn) went off to JUCO I kind of figured we were going to play against each other one day," Adams told WGEM Sports.

"It's just been really interesting and fun."

"We definitely wanted to play with each other again after I left Quincy University, so that was definitely why CJ came here," added Norris.

Maybe everything does happen for a reason.

Not only have Norris and Adams careers come full circle, but they are also creating a new legacy helping to lead a program to unseen heights.

"It was scary, you know, when you decide to leave a school, but I definitely think I made the right decision to come to Culver Stockton," Norris expressed.

"It's a lot of fun and I'm glad that we're having success."

"We're both really happy," added Adams.

"I'm just trying to do my best to produce for the team. I'm trying to do all I can to help us get to the National Tournament."

The Michigan natives have helped lead the Wildcats to a 17-6 record overall, including an 8-3 run so far in the Heart of America Athletic Conference, alone in third place.

The top two teams will automatically qualify for the NAIA National Tournament.
