Tri-C basketball stars to appear on WKNR’s ‘Munch on Sports’ Tuesday evening
January 09, 2017
The Cuyahoga Community College men’s basketball team has been tearing up the schedule thus far in the 2016-2017 season, bringing a 14-0 record into their Wednesday game against Hocking College.
The unblemished start to the season has garnered national recognition for the Challengers. The squad was ranked fourth nationally in the most recent National Junior College Athletic Association coaches’ poll, released Dec. 20. Freshman guard Devon Robinson was named the NJCAA Division II player of the week for Dec. 12-18, averaging 16 points and 13.5 rebounds per game.
The streaking Challengers are also starting to gain local attention – no small feat amid the flood of headline-grabbing moves recently made by Cleveland’s professional teams.
Tuesday at 8 p.m., Robinson, leading scorer Quintin Dove and leading assist man Elmange Watson will join head coach Michael Duncan on “Munch on Sports,” heard on ESPN 850 AM WKNR. Coach Duncan and his trio of stars will talk with host Mark “Munch” Bishop about the team’s hot start, upcoming schedule and the rejuvenation of the Tri-C men’s basketball program.
