Congrats to the  five players below on being named to the TGR NCAA All American Team.

Jake Cohen - Cohen was the preseason player of the year, but in my opinion under preformed. He is only a Sophomore and still has tremendous upside. He finished with 12pts and 6rbs a game. Most likely he will be next year’s preseason player of the year again. Talented. Big. Good guy. We wish him luck in the BCI Tournament.

Chris Wroblewski -  Wroblewski’s team did not have nearly the season they had a year ago. But he was great. He definitely got consideration for player of the year. With a line of 14pts, 5assists, and 3 board it was a great year for him.

Bryan Cohen - Cohen’s numbers aren’t huge with only 7 points a game. But he helped Bucknell get to the big dance. Most importantly he was named the Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year.

Co-Players of the Year 


 Zach Rosen - Rosen, for the second consecutive year, was named All Ivy league. He was Penn’s best player averaging 14 points, 5 assists, and 3 boards. In what was an improve Ivy League with Harvard, Princeton, and some of Cornell left in place Rosen held his own all year.

Jared Mintz - Mintz had the best year out of all the Jewish ball players. He is in a poor conference but he dominated at times. He was named First Team All Patriot League averaging 16 points, 2 assists, and 5 boards. Great year for Mintz.

Congrats to all the players. Great years. I hope they continue the trend and go on to play in Israel.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
