WILMINGTON, North Carolina (UNCWSports.com) – UNCW junior forward Devontae Cacok, the nation’s leading rebounder, has moved up to First-Team NABC All-District 10 in balloting by the National Association of Basketball Coaches.
Cacok, a 6-7, 240-pounder, shattered several rebounding records during the course of the 2017-18 season and finished with 431 boards in 32 appearances, gathering the most rebounds in a single season at UNCW and third highest in CAA history. He was a Second-Team All-NABC District 10 pick one year ago.
The Riverdale, Ga., product paced the team in scoring with 17.7 points per game and also topped the club on the glass with 13.5 caroms each contest. He made 29 starts and shot 58.5 percent from the field.
With his 13.5 rebound average, Cacok is trying to lead the nation’s NCAA Division I players in a statistical category for the second straight season. He finished first in field goal percentage one year ago when he connected on 80 percent of his shots as the Seahawks captured their second straight CAA title.
