Here’s a guy, Nate Cox, who went from being a pretty good high school player (just barely worthy of the title “standout”) to a great college player.
Nathan Cox led Davenport University to two wins during the opening week of basketball season to be named the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) Men’s Basketball Player of the Week. A senior from Flushing, Mich., Cox averaged 22.5 points and 5 rebounds as 11th-ranked Davenport defeated Great Lakes Christian College (Mich.), 110-56, and Grace Bible College (Mich.), 74-70. He added two assists and two blocked shots on the week. The forward was named the Panther Tip-Off MVP after scoring 12 points during a 16-point run to help DU overcome a 56-42 deficit in the championship game against two-time defending NCCAA champions Grace Bible.
