In a season when the men’s team appeared in the NCAA Tournament and the women’s team reached the WNI T, a trio of junior basketball student athletes surpassed a milestone in their careers as Sophia Aleksandravicius, Jake Cohen, and JP Kuhlman topped the 1,000-point mark.
Aleksandravicius accomplished the achievement after scoring 12 points in a home win over Georgia Southern Dec. 19. The Davidson record holder in career blocked shots, she is on pace to become the school’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder.
Cohen scored the first 13 points of the game against Western Carolina Jan. 12, to eclipse the milestone, finishing the game with 26 points. Kuhlman scored his 1,000th career point on a free throw in a win at Appalachian State on Jan. 14
The success of both teams also led to a host of postseason accolades. Aleksandravicius was named SoCon Player of the Year, and head coach Michele Savage was named Coach of the Year.
Cohen was named SoCon Player of the Year by the league’s media and sophomore forward De’Mon Brooks was named Player of the Year by the coaches—the first time in conference history two players from the same team shared the distinction. Head coach Bob McKillop was named the league’s Coach of the Year for a record eighth time.
