Harris, Black Earn D3hoops.com All-South Region honors

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - D3hoops.com released the 2019-20 All-Region teams Tuesday morning and two Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference men’s basketball players earned a spot on the All-South Region team.

Centenary College’s Cedric Harris, a senior guard from Shreveport, La., earned first team recognition, while Colorado College’s CooXooEli Black, a senior forward from Arapahoe, Wyo., was named to the second team.

Harris was named the SCAC Player of the Year and the SCAC Tournament MVP earlier this month. He also earned two SCAC Player of the Week honors this season. 

Harris played in all 28 games for the Gents this season, starting 27 of them, while leading Centenary to its first-ever SCAC Tournament Title and trip to the Division III NCAA Tournament. He ended the year averaging 20.2 points per game, second in the conference, and led the SCAC in three-point field goals made (108), field goals made (196), defensive rebounds (200) and total points (566). The 108 three-point field goals made set a new SCAC high for the most in a single season, breaking the old mark of 104 set in the 2003-04 season by Oglethorpe’s Josh Burr. Harris also ranked top five in the league for minutes per game (34.6 – third), total rebounds (243 – third) and points per 40 minutes (23.4 – fourth).

Harris concluded his career with 1,539 points, 13th-most in league history and his 262 three-point field goals is good enough for third all-time.

Black led the SCAC in scoring, averaging 21.3 points per game during the regular season. The senior forward also was second with a .543 field-goal percentage and fourth in rebounding at 8.8 per contest.

Black finished the season with a career-high 512 points to become the 16th player in school history to score 500 or more in a single season.

During his last home game, the 75-52 victory over Trinity University, Black became just the fourth player in conference history to record 1,500 or more career points and 700 or more career rebounds.

With 31 points at Southwestern University on Feb. 21, Black became the fifth player in program history and just the ninth in the SCAC to reach the 1,600-point mark. He ended his career with 1,625, which is ninth all-time.
