Saint Augustine’s freshman Quincy January was named CIAA Men’s Basketball Rookie of the Year by the CIAA Sports Information Directors’ Association.
January is a big reason why the surprising Falcons are tied for third in the Southern Division with one game left in the regular season. The Falcons were picked to finish sixth by the CIAA coaches in the preseason.
January leads the CIAA in field goal percentage (65.0) and ranks seventh nationally in Division II in offensive rebounds per game (3.71). He ranks third on the team in scoring (10.9) and first in rebounding (7.1). The 6-foot-7 forward was voted CIAA Men’s Basketball Rookie of the Week four times which led all freshmen in the conference. He is well-known around the league for his rim-rattling dunks.
