ANOTHER HONOR FOR HOOPS STAR CHADWICK-MYERS; JUNIOR CITED BY NABC

Jonathan Chadwick-Myers, who helped lead the Dolphins to a CUNYAC Championship earned 2nd-team NABC honors this season

On the heels of a first-team all-star selection by both the CUNYAC and the ECAC Metro region, College of Staten Island men’s basketball junior guard Jonathan Chadwick-Myers has been named a second-team All-Star to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Atlantic Region. Chadwick-Myers joins a collection of 10 others as all-stars, his first-ever citation by the NABC.

Chadwick-Myers appeared and started in 27 games for the Dolphins, helping lead the team to a CUNYAC Championship, an 80-74 win over John Jay College. He finished his 2012-13 campaign with a team-high 481 points, good for a 17.8 average. He also led the squad in three-pointers with 70 and three-point shooting percentage (39.5%). Along the way, he added an even 100 assists to go with 82 rebounds and 32 steals, tied for second on the squad.

A junior transfer, Chadwick-Myers last played at SUNY-Delhi, and will finish his career with the Dolphins next year.  His efforts have already had an impact on the CSI record books as well. He became only the eighth CSI player ever to record 70+ three-pointers in a season, and his 481 points and 17.8 point-per-game average are the most by a first-year CSI player in almost 30 years.

Chadwick-Myers was one of four CUNYAC players listed as NABC Atlantic Region All-Stars. John Jay College’s Jamar Harry, the CUNYAC Player of the Year was the only member on NABC’s first team. Both York College’s Tony Vails and Medgar Evers’ Winston Douglas were tabbed as 2nd-team All-Stars. AJ Matthews, who capped an amazing season with Farmingdale State College, took home NABC Atlantic Player of the Year honors, while Ramapo College head coach Chuck McBreen  was named the group’s Coach of the Year.

Located in Kansas City, MO, the NABC was founded in 1927 by Forrest “Phog” Allen, the legendary basketball coach at the University of Kansas.  Allen, a student of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, organized coaches into this collective group to serve as Guardians of the Game.  The NABC currently has nearly 5,000 members consisting primarily of university and college men’s basketball coaches.  Additional information about the NABC, its programs and membership, can be found at www.nabc.org.
