Potts named to Boxtorow HBCU basketball team

Bethune-Cookman University redshirt junior Jordan Potts has been named to the Boxtorow HBCU All-American Basketball Third Team.

Potts, a guard from Columbus Ohio, was named to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference’s All Conference second team and the National Association of Basketball Coaches District 15 second team last month.

He led the Wildcats in scoring with an average of 16.0 points per game (sixth in the conference) and had the team highs with 4.3 assists per game (first in the conference) and 1.6 steals (fourth) and 37.7 minutes per game (first).

Potts reached double figure scoring 27 times in the 2015-16 season with 11 games of 20 or more and a career-high 35 points outburst at UCF. His 85 three-pointers were the fifth best single-season total in program history while his 138 assists were the fourth best single-season total.

Potts is the third B-CU player selected in the eight-year history of the award: C.J. Reed was named HBCU Player of the Year in 2011 and Adrien Coleman garnered a first team berth in 2013.
