Noah Cottrill continues to make the most out of his senior season of college basketball.
Cottrill, a 6-foot-3 guard and Logan High School graduate, leads the team as he averages 18.1 points per game for Georgetown College (Ky.), 24-3 and ranked No. 2 in the country in NAIA.
Cottrill has sank 134-for-281 field goals for 47.7 percent and leads the team with 80 makes from beyond the 3-point arc. He’s hitting on 51.3 percent of his 3s, also tops on the team.
Cottrill also leads the Tigers in free throw percentage as he as netted 123-for-137 for a sizzling 89.8 percent. In addition, he has 83 total rebounds, a team-best 92 assists, 25 steals and one blocked shot.
Georgetown most recently won 111-89 on Saturday at home as Noah Cottrill tallied 22 points. Chris Coffey paced the Tigers with 25 points and had a highlight-reel type of game with many dunks.
In Georgetown’s 81-74 win at Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tenn., Cottrill hit a pressure bucket while being fouled and completed a three-point play late in the game to finish off the come-from-behind victory. He had 17 points in the win.
The Tigers are scheduled to finish off the regular season on Thursday at home over Shawnee State.
Minnick gets started
Former Logan High School baseball player Zach Minnick got started with his first collegiate action over the weekend with the Campbell University baseball squad.
Minnick, a freshman, went 0-for-6 at the plate as Campbell (2-1) began the season with a series win over visiting Miami (Ohio), taking the first two games 7-0 and 5-3 before dropping a 5-4 contest on Sunday.
Minnick was the Camels’ designated hitter in the first game and had one RBI. He batted sixth in the order and was the catcher in Game 2. In the loss, Minnick was a pinch-hitter and struck out.
Campbell was scheduled to head to Duke on Tuesday for its first road test of the season.
The Camels then return home for the weekend, hosting Minnesota of the Big Ten Conference.
