DURHAM — Duke junior Quinn Cook has been named to the 2014 Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award watch list, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame committee announced Tuesday. The annual honor recognizes the top point guards in men’s college basketball.
Cook averaged 11.7 points, 3.8 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game last season. He finished second in the ACC in assists and assist-to-turnover ratio (2.4:1), fifth in steals (1.4 spg.) and ninth in minutes (33.6 mpg.). Cook improved from the perimeter, shooting 39.3 percent from 3-point range, making 55.
Previous winners of the Bob Cousy Award include North Carolina’s Raymond Felton, Ty Lawson and Kendall Marshall. Michigan’s Trey Burke won last year.
North Carolina: The 11th-ranked Tar Heels lost 1-0 at home to UNC Wilmington. Jordan Cordero scored in the 36th minute. The Tar Heels lost despite outshooting the Seahawks 16-4.
N.C. State: Nick Surkamp and Alex Martinez scored as the Wolfpack beat Liberty 2-0 to post its fourth shutout of the year.
Duke: Sean Davis scored less than 30 seconds into the second half and then added a goal on a penalty kick in the Blue Devils’ 3-0 win over Elon. Brody Huitema also scored for Duke.
Wake Forest: Andy Lubahn came off the bench and scored twice for Wake Forest, and Sean Okoli and Shane Powell each scored in a 4-0 victory over Davidson.
St. Augustine’s: Linebacker Chaz Robinson was named CIAA linebacker of the week for the second consecutive week and for the fourth time this season.
Robinson became the St. Aug career tackles leader Saturday in a 35-17 loss to Winston-Salem State. He finished with a game-high 13 tackles. Robinson has 374 career tackles, breaking the previous mark of 363 set by Kevin Jones, a former All-American linebacker and current St. Aug safeties coach.
Robinson leads the CIAA and ranks fourth in the nation with 13.3 tackles per game.
Robinson isn’t the only Falcon to distinguishing himself on defense. Tackle Shonquez Nelson is the Division II leader in sacks.
Nelson ranks first nationally in sacks (10.5) and sacks per game (1.5). Nelson tied a career high with three sacks against Winston-Salem State.
Nelson is closing in on the St. Aug single-season and career sack records. The single-season mark is 13 set by current Canadian Football League All-Star Alex Hall in 2006 and current St. Aug end Javarous Faulk in 2012.
The career record is 26 held by Hall (2003-2007) and former star end Marcus Crump (2005-2009). Nelson has 22.5 career sacks with three games remaining in the regular season.

Kaylin Yost shared individual medalist honors, and Campbell set a tournament 54-hole record by finishing 23-over 887 to claim a 10-stroke victory over runner-up Old Dominion in the 11-school field. Yost shot 5-over 221 for her third collegiate individual title.
