Slam Dunk Season: Euclid's Quintin Dove Earns All-American Honors Playing for Tri-C

Euclid's Quintin Dove was named a first-team NJCAA All-American, adding to the postseason honors for the Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) men’s basketball team.

The sophomore forward was previously named the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference Player of the Year. He was the only Ohio player named to the NJCAA All-American first, second or third team in Division II.

Dove put together an exceptional season for the Challengers, leading the team in:

  • Points per game (18.9)
  • Offensive rebounds per game (4.2)
  • Field goal percentage (65.5)

His 65.5 percent shooting from the field was the fourth-highest in Division II nationwide.

Led by a stellar sophomore class of Dove, Wade Lowman, Waheem Lowman, Devon Robinson and Larenz Thurman, the Challengers racked up a 32-2 record during the 2017-2018 season.

The team won the OCCAC title and finished seventh at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament in March.

Dove will graduate from Tri-C in May with an Associate of Arts degree. He will continue his education and his college basketball career at the University of Tennessee at Martin, where he hopes to major in engineering. He's scheduled to play in an NJCAA All-Star Game in Las Vegas on May 19.
