Doubling Up: Tri-C’s Devon Robinson Claims Second ‘OCCAC Player of the Week’ Award
Sophomore forward leads nationally ranked Challengers to three more wins
Another week, another honor for a member of the men’s basketball team at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
Sophomore forward Devon Robinson earned Division II Player of the Week honors from the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference for his performance Dec. 4-10. Tri-C players have claimed the award four times in the season’s first six weeks.
Robinson averaged 8.3 points and 12 rebounds per game while leading the nationally ranked Challengers to three victories on the week, lifting the team’s record to 13-0. He also contributed 3.7 assists and 1.7 blocked shots per game.
This is the second conference Player of the Week honor this year for Robinson, who also won the award in the season’s opening week. Teammates Quintin Dove and Wade Lowman were honored the past two weeks.
Robinson, who attended John Adams High School in Cleveland, is working toward an Associate of Arts degree at Tri-C. He recently received a full athletic scholarship to play next season for California University of Pennsylvania, a Division II NCAA school.
The Challengers are ranked fifth in the country in the most recent NJCAA Division II poll. The team plays its home games at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus gymnasium, located at the corner of East 30th Street and Community College Avenue in Cleveland.
