Noah Cottrill hopes to finish out his collegiate basketball career with a bang.
He’s well on his way to doing just that.
After 14 games, Cottrill, a Logan High School graduate, is averaging 17.3 points a game this season in his senior year at Georgetown (Ky.) College.
Georgetown, an NAIA school, is a perfect 14-0 so far this season.
Cottrill, a 6-foot-3 guard, is shooting the ball very well for the Tigers this year. He’s hit on 62-of-137 shots from the floor for 45.3 percent and has sank 32-of-66 shots from beyond the 3-point arc for a blistering 48.5 percent — second best on the team.
Cottrill is a sizzling 95.8 percent at the free throw line as he has netted an incredible 69-for-72 shots from the charity stripe.
Cottrill also has 31 total rebounds, 46 assists, 16 steals and a blocked shot.
More than three weeks ago Georgetown wrapped up the first part of the season with one of its closest wins – 23 point victory over Kentucky Christian.
The Tigers started the second half of the season with a lopsided win last Saturday – a 107-54 pounding of Ohio University-Chillicothe. Cottrill rained down three 3-pointers in the blowout win and finished with 15 points.
Georgetown, currently ranked No. 2 in the country in the NAIA Coaches’ Poll, has five victories of 50-plus points or more.
The Tigers are scheduled to get back in action on Thursday against Mid-South Conference foe Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio.
Cottrill, who led Logan to the 2010 Class AAA state championship, had previously played college ball at West Virginia Wesleyan. He had a brief stint at WVU after finishing his prep career at Logan.
Cottrill also played prep ball at Poca High School and Mountain State Academy in Beckley.
