J.C. Smith's Parks named CIAA Player of Year

Johnson C. Smith sophomore guard Trevin Parks was named CIAA men's basketball player of the year by the conference's coaches association, the league announced on Wednesday.

He is the first Golden Bulls player ever named CIAA Player of the Year.

Parks, who leads the CIAA in scoring at 22.4 points, ranks ninth in Division II. Three times this season he scored more than 30 points in a game, and enjoyed a game-high of 36 points. He also averages 4.6 assists.

Parks joined the Golden Bulls this season after spending his freshman season with Division I Charlotte. He played in 10 games and scored 16 points for the 49ers.

Parks averaged 24 points and five assists as a senior at Hickory High.

“Trevin has been a pleasant surprise for us this season,” J.C. Smith coach Stephen Joyner, Sr., said. “He has stepped in and showed leadership ability. He’s always concerned about doing the right thing by his coaches and teammates. This is a tremendous honor for Trevin and our program.”

Haha "like they would have if you went to UNCC"...are you serious? This paper gives very little time to the 49ers. Unless it's UNC Chapel Hill they don't care. Congrats to Mr. Parks! Niners fan still love you!!!
