Two Cleveland State Cougars men's basketball players have received an invitation to the All-American JUCO Showcase in Atlanta, Ga., July 12-14.
Demonte Person and Jaquez Hicks, both rising sophomores, were invited to the exclusive tournament for sophomores which only brings in 160 players from across the country and 80 from the East Region. They will compete for hundreds of four-year college coaches and NBA scouts in attendance. The event will be nationally televised.
Person led the team in assists averaging four per game. Hicks was second on the team with 19 total blocks on the year. Both will return to Cleveland State for their sophomore seasons as the Cougars look to build on their 2019 TCCAA title and national tournament win.
