Colts' Cooper Earns All American Honors

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

Middletown, NY - For the first time in three years the SUNY Orange Colts basketball team returned to post season play. One of the main reasons for the Colts success and playoff appearance was the outstanding play and leadership of sophomore Tyvon Cooper. Due to Tyvon's contributions to the team he has been named to the National Junior College Athletic Association Division 2 All American Team. Not only was his play on the court stellar, but so were his leadership qualities. Tyvon was always positive and encouraging with his teammates and never gave up on a play or a game. Nationally Cooper was 3rd in scoring at 23.7 points per game. He was also 8th in free throw percentage, shooting 85%. He showed his all around versatility by leading Orange in several statistical categories in addition to the two above, these included; rebounds, steals, field goals made and 3 point field goals made. Tyvon's season also places him into the SUNY Orange record book. His 23.7 points per game places him seventh on the all time single season scoring average list and his 88 made 3 pointers are second to only Neal Wilkins 91 during the 2004-2005 season. Congratulations to Tyvon for this great accomplishment!
