South Arkansas Community College center JeRodney Tubbs was recognized as second-team All-Region at the NJCAA DII Region 2 Tournament here over the weekend.
Tubbs (6-3, Junction City) often was a dominant force in the paint for the Stars (7-14) in the team’s first-ever season, averaging a Region 2-best 9.8 rebounds per game, second-best 61.7 percent from the field and 15.5 points. His field-goal and rebound averages placed him in the top 20 nationally. He was one of just two freshmen named to the All-Region 2 team.
“It’s pretty special to have him make this list with such an incredible group of student-athletes around him,” Stars coach Nate Davis said. “What a remarkable season this young man has had. I’m very excited to see what his future holds.”
JeRodney was also just named NJCAA Men's DII Basketball Player of the Week Feb 24-Mar 1, 2020.
