The College of Staten Island men’s basketball season ended just over a week ago in the First Round of the NCAA Division III National Championship, but that hasn’t stopped the accolades from continuing to come pouring in. Most recently, junior guard Jonathan Chadwick-Myers, on the heels of a 1st-team All-CUNYAC selection, has been named a first-team All-Star to the ECAC Metro region. Chadwick-Myers joins a collection of 12 others as all-stars, his first-ever citation by the ECAC.
Missing only a single game due to injury, Chadwick-Myers appeared and started in 27 games for the Dolphins, helping lead the team to its second-straight 20-win and CUNYAC-Championship season. The sharp-shooting junior finished 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, Chadwick-Myers shot a sensational 76.3% from the free-throw line, adding an even 100 assists to go with 82 rebounds and 32 steals, tied for second on the squad.
His efforts have 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. A junior transfer, Chadwick-Myers last played at SUNY-Delhi, and will finish his career with the Dolphins next year.
Chadwick-Myers was one of four CUNYAC players listed as ECAC Metro All-Stars. John Jay College’s Jamar Harry was the only other member on ECAC’s first team. Both Brooklyn College’s Kavon Baker and Medgar Evers’ Winston Douglas were tabbed as 2nd-team All-Stars. Tyrik Tucker, who capped an amazing season with SUNY-Old Westbury took home ECAC Metro Player of the Year honors, while New Jersey City University’s Khalid Muhammed was named the conference’s Rookie of the Year.
