Quintin Dove Named First-Team All-American
Award is the second postseason honor for men’s basketball star
The postseason honors continue to roll in for the Cuyahoga Community College men’s basketball team. Tuesday, Quintin Dove became one of 10 players named to the NJCAA Division II All-American first team.
The sophomore forward was previously named the OCCAC Player of the Year. He was the only Ohio player named to the NJCAA All-American first, second or third team in Division II.
Dove put together an exceptional season for the Challengers, leading the team in:
- Points per game (18.9)
- Offensive rebounds per game (4.2)
- Field goal percentage (65.5)
His 65.5 percent shooting from the field was the fourth-highest in Division II nationwide.
Led by a stellar sophomore class of Dove, Wade Lowman, Waheem Lowman, Larenz Thurman and Devon Robinson, the Challengers racked up a 32-2 record, won the OCCAC title, and finished seventh at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament in March.
Dove will graduate from Tri-C in May with an Associate of Arts degree. He will continue his education, and his college basketball career, at the University of Tennessee at Martin, where he hopes to major in engineering.
