Cronin Named National Coach of the Year by the Sporting News

 

CINCINNATI – University of Cincinnati men’s basketball head coach Mick Cronin has been named the 2017-18 Sporting News Coach of the Year.

 

Cronin has guided the eighth-ranked Cincinnati Bearcats (27-4, 16-2 American Athletic Conference) to their first outright conference championship since 2002 and earned the top seed in this week’s American Championship at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla.

 

The 2017-18 regular season saw the Bearcats win a nation’s best 16 consecutive games, grow their home-court win streak to a nation’s longest 39 games and climb as high as No. 5 in both national polls – all Cronin coaching era (since 2006-07) high marks.

The Bearcats’ 16 conference wins tied for most in school history while their 27 overall victories at the end of the regular season are tied for the second most at UC.

 

UC ranks among the nation’s Top 25 in 11 categories entering the postseason: scoring margin (first at +18.3), field-goal percentage defense (second at .371), scoring defense (second at 57.3), win-lost percentage (fifth at .871), blocked shots per game (eighth at 5.6), rebound margin (10th at +7.7), total blocks (10th with 174), offensive rebounds per game (12th at 13.2), three-point field-goal percentage defense (14th at .310), turnover margin (18th at +3.5) and total rebounds per game (21st at 39.2).

 

Bearcat opponents are shooting only 37.1 percent from the field this season (second nationally), the lowest in the 12-year coaching tenure of Cronin and the lowest at UC since the 1961-62 campaign (.369). UC’s scoring defense (57.3 points allowed) is the second lowest of the Cronin era behind only the 2014-15 squad (55.8).

 

Cronin was named a semifinalist for the Werner Ladder Naismith Men’s College Coach of the Year on Feb. 23.

 

The 2014 AAC Coach of the Year, Cronin was tabbed a finalist for the 2014 USBWA Henry Iba National Coach of the Year Award for his efforts in helping guide the Bearcats to a share of the inaugural AAC regular-season crown with Louisville.

 

Cronin is one of only six coaches to take his team to the NCAA Tournament in each of the last seven years, joining Mark Few (Gonzaga), Tom Izzo (Michigan State), Mike Krzyzewski (Duke), Bill Self (Kansas) and Roy Williams (North Carolina).

 

Cronin owns a 332-163 career record in his 15th season overall. He is 263-139 mark in his 12th season at Cincinnati. He posted a 69-24 mark in three seasons as head coach at Murray State from 2004-2006.

 

The 46-year old Cronin ranks second in the nation in career wins among coaches under the age of 50.

 

// BEARCATS EARN TOP SEED IN 2018 AARON’S AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Head coach Scott Nagy and three players of the Wright State men’s basketball team received honors as the Horizon League announced its annual League awards Wednesday afternoon: Nagy was tabbed as Coach of the Year, senior Grant Benzinger was selected to the first team, Loudon Love was chosen as the Freshman of the Year and to the second team and junior Mark Hughes was voted to the Defensive Team.

“I think that the awards given out are essentially team awards for us, I think that’s how the guys look at it, and I’m sure they’re all very humbled for being honored,” Nagy said. “All three of them made tremendous contributions to our basketball team and certainly are very deserving.”

Scott Nagy

Nagy, in his second year at Wright State, led the Raiders to a 22-9 and 14-4 record as WSU finished in second place.  Nagy becomes the fourth Raider head coach to win the honor.  The 14 league wins marked a new school record for conference wins and includes two victories over regular-season champion Northern Kentucky.

Benzinger, a guard from Cincinnati (OH) Moeller High School, has led the Raiders in scoring all season and currently has a 14.6 points per game average, ranking eighth in the Horizon League.  He scored in double figures in 24 games, including his season-best 31 points at Northern Kentucky.  Benzinger, who was the Player of the Week on January 15, leads the league in free throw shooting at 89.1%, third in three-point shooting at 37.1%, fifth in minutes played at 34.4 per game as well as 18th in rebounding with an average of 4.9.

Love, a center from Geneva (IL) High School, was named the Freshman of the Week seven times this year as he led the league in rebounding at  9.7 per game and averaged 12.7 points, which ranks 15th.  He collected his career-high 19 rebounds against Milwaukee and his high of 25 points at Oakland.  He also had 12 double-double performances while starting all 31 games.  The freshman became the first WSU player to receive the Freshman of the Year honor after it was renamed from the previous Newcomer of the Year Award prior to the 2012-13 season.  As the Newcomer of the Year Award, five Raiders received the honor.

Hughes, a guard from Youngstown (OH) Ursuline High School, has led the Raiders in steals with 37, as he helped the Raiders rank second in team defense in the Horizon League.  He is the seventh Raider to appear on the Defensive Team since 2007.  Hughes also averaged 10.1 points and 3.0 rebounds per game while hitting 57 three pointers.
