The Winning Continues as Tri-C Basketball Player Claims Conference Honor
Tyrek Battle-Holley named Player of the Week after leading Triceratops to 10th consecutive victory
Another week of winning meant another week of awards for the men’s basketball team at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) as it closed out the regular season.
Tyrek Battle-Holley earned Division II Player of the Week honors from the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference for games played Feb. 24-March 1 after leading the Triceratops to their 10th consecutive victory.
The guard scored 23 points while hitting on seven of eight shot attempts, including 2-3 from the three-point line. He added eight assists, seven rebounds and a pair of steals in the win over Clark State Community College.
This is Battle-Holley’s second weekly honor from the conference. The first came in February during the early stages of Tri-C’s winning streak.
The sophomore from New Jersey is working toward an Associate of Arts degree at the College.
Tri-C is 20-8 overall and ranked 20th in the regular season’s final NJCAA Division II poll. The team finished third in the conference standings, a game behind first-place Lakeland Community College.
The Triceratops enter postseason play as the #2 seed in the NJCAA Great Lakes South District men’s basketball tournament. They face Edison State Community College at 7 p.m. Friday, March 6, at Ohio University’s Lancaster campus.
The winner of the district tournament advances to the national tournament.
