CINCINNATI – University of Cincinnati men’s basketball junior guard Jarron Cumberland (Wilmington, Ohio/Wilmington High School) has been named a unanimous First Team All-American Athletic Conference selection by the league’s coaches.

 

Cumberland was one of three players in the league to earn unanimous first-team honors along with Cory Davis Jr. of Houston and Jeremiah Martin of Memphis. The other first-team All-AAC honorees were Temple’s Shizz Alston Jr. and UCF’s B.J. Taylor.

 

It marks the second consecutive season and third time in the league’s six years that a Bearcats student-athlete was tabbed a unanimous first-team all-league selection. UC All-Americans Gary Clark (2018) and Sean Kilpatrick (2014) also earned the distinction.

 

Cumberland averaged 18.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists during the regular season, helping lead the Bearcats to a 25-6 overall record and second-place finish at 14-4 in the league. He scored 20 or more points 15 times during the season and served as Cincinnati’s top scorer in 20 games, including 14 in league play.

 

Cumberland ranked among AAC leaders in seven categories this season: points (third at 18.4), three-point field goal percentage (fifth at .404), three-pointers made (tied for sixth at 2.3), free throw percentage (eighth at .780), assists (11th at 3.5), assist-to-turnover ratio (13th at 1.3) and minutes played (15th at 32.1).

 

Cumberland was recognized by the league nine times for weekly honors in 2018-19, earning player of the week accolades four times (Nov. 26, Dec. 24, Jan. 21 and Jan. 28) and a spot on the weekly honor roll five times (Jan. 14, Feb. 4, Feb. 11, Feb. 18 and March 4).

 

As a freshman, Cumberland was named to The American’s All-Rookie Team and was the AAC’s Co-Sixth Man of the Year in 2016-17.
