Tri-C Basketball All-Americans Earn OCCAC All-Decade Honors
Quintin Dove and James Anderson Jr. selected as two of the best to take the court in the 2010s
Two basketball All-Americans from Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) earned spots on the 2010s All-Decade Team announced by the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference.
Tri-C’s Quintin Dove and James Anderson Jr. — both graduates of the College who earned scholarships to play and study at four-year schools — joined 19 other conference players on the team.
Dove was named a first-team NJCAA All-American in 2018 after leading Tri-C to a 32-2 record and the national tournament. The forward averaged 18.9 points per game while posting one of the highest shooting percentages in the country.
He was named OCCAC Player of the Year that season, which also saw Tri-C rise to the top of the NJCAA rankings.
Dove, of Euclid, transferred to the University of Tennessee at Martin after earning an Associate of Arts degree at Tri-C. He is averaging just under 20 points per game during his senior season with the Skyhawks.
Anderson was named a third-team NJCAA All-American in 2019 as Tri-C finished atop the conference standings for the third consecutive season. The forward averaged 16.3 points per game while leading the Triceratops to a 25-7 record.
He finished second in OCCAC Player of the Year voting.
The Georgia native transferred to the University of North Alabama after graduating from Tri-C with an Associate of Arts degree. He is averaging 6.7 points per game during his junior season with the Lions.
All 21 players on the OCCAC 2010s All-Decade Team earned All-American honors. The players represented eight schools in the conference. Seven of the schools placed two or more players on the team.
