Two members of the nationally ranked basketball team at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) will continue their playing careers in the NCAA next season.
Quintin Dove and Devon Robinson recently signed letters of intent to commit to four-year schools in 2018-2019. Dove will take the court for the University of Tennessee at Martin, while Robinson will play for California University of Pennsylvania.
“Quintin and Devon earned these opportunities through hard work and dedication,” said Michael Duncan, head coach of the Challengers. “They’ve lived up to the tradition of excellence we demand at Tri-C.”
Dove, a sophomore from Euclid, is scoring a team-leading 17.3 points per game for Tri-C this season. The forward averaged 13.1 points per game in 2016-2017 while being named Second Team All-Ohio Community College Athletic Conference.
He received a full athletic scholarship with the University of Tennessee at Martin, a Division I NCAA school. The Skyhawks compete in the Ohio Valley Conference.
Robinson, a sophomore from Cleveland, is averaging 13.6 points and a team-leading 8.6 rebounds per game for the Challengers this season. He was named the conference Freshman of the Year in 2016-2017 and received First Team All-OCCAC honors.
He received a full athletic scholarship with California University of Pennsylvania, a Division II NCAA school. The Vulcans compete in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.
Tri-C began play this year with high expectations following a 28-3 campaign in 2016-2017. The Challengers opened the season ranked 12th in the NJCAA Division II preseason poll and as favorites to win the OCCAC.
The team, currently 5-0, begins conference play this weekend. The Challengers play their home games at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus gymnasium in Cleveland. For more information, visit www.tri-c.edu/athletics.
