NCAA Rockaway College Basketball Update
There have been more positives than negatives so far in the ever growing college career of Rahshon Clark. The sophomore had doubled his scoring average from 7 to 14 points per game for the Iowa State Cyclones and won the 2005 ISU Outstanding Defensive Player Award.
Starting 16 of 17 games at small forward, Clark has found his niche as a high energy player who can rebound and get to the basket with more consistency. He was the best player in a nationally televised loss by Iowa State to the University of Texas on January 9 with 18 points.
Richard Forbes continues to shine in the lone star state of Texas. The point guard has helped Howard College to a 18-0 record and at one point leaped to the top of the National Junior College Athletic Association top 25 poll in December. He’s averaged 10 points per game in 18 starts this season.
Katreem Palmer , former Beach Channel Lady Dolphins, has averaged double figures in points for the streaking Delaware State Lady Hornets. A three game winning streak, which improved their record to 9-5, has coincided with the emergence of the sophomore in the regular rotation.
Elijah Muldrow, the senior point guard at Arkansas Little Rock, has started all 16 games this season. Arkansas is 9-7 and 2-2 overall in the Sun Belt Conference. He’s averaged 10 points in 30 minutes of action this year.
Senior point guard Carl Benn has been an essential part in guiding the U-Mass Lowell River Hawks to the top 25 of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division II Poll. U-Mass is currently 14-3 and in second place in the Northeast 10 Conference. Benn is third in steals in the league.
Arthur Robertson has been the go to player for Post University in his second season on the team. Currently struggling with a 5-8 record, Robertson has played solid and ranks second in the team in scoring with 12 per game and the only person to start in every contest.
Ray Corrigan has returned from an anterior cruciate ligament injury suffered last year while playing for the Amherst College Jeffs. The senior point guard, whose team is currently at 10-2, has played five games in limited action as he regains his fitness on the floor.
