Sophomore forward leads nationally ranked Challengers to three wins
Winning seems to be contagious for the men’s basketball team at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
Sophomore forward Quintin Dove earned Division II Player of the Week honors from the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference for his performance Nov. 27-Dec. 3. He is the third Challenger honored by the conference in the season’s first five weeks.
Dove averaged 17 points per game last week while shooting a blistering 73 percent, making 19 of 26 shots. He also grabbed a dozen rebounds per game as the nationally ranked Challengers raised their record to 10-0.
On the season, Dove leads Tri-C in scoring and blocked shots and is second in rebounds.
Dove, of Euclid, is working toward an Associate of Arts degree at Tri-C. He recently received a full athletic scholarship to play next season with the University of Tennessee at Martin, a Division I NCAA school.
The Challengers play their home games at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus gymnasium, located at the corner of East 30th Street and Community College Avenue in Cleveland. View the full team schedule.
