Men's Basketball - Thu, Mar. 31, 2011
Former Golden Eagle camper Conor Hogan from Grand Rapids Catholic Central, has decided to further his education and play basketball at Cornerstone University. The 6-1 guard signed his Letter of Intent on March 25.
Hogan guided the Cougars to a 19-4 record and an OK Gold Championship (12-2) this past season. He led his team scoring with 20.2 point/game while handing out a team-high 4.7 assist/game. He also averaged 2.7 steals/game to lead the team in that category as well.
Hogan, who had a season-high 30 points against Middleville High School in December, had the highest 3-point FG% (.470) and FT% (.860) in the Grand Rapids area. His 147 free throws made was #1 in the state of Michigan this past season.
Hogan was named 1st Team All-Conference this past season and was also named to the Bank Hoops All-State 1st Team. He was also recognized by the Grand Rapids Press as a 2nd Team All-Area player and was selected to the AP Class B Honorable Mention Team.
"Conor is an outstanding player and he will be a tremendous asset to our team. He can do a lot of things on offense: shoot from the perimeter, take the ball to the basket, make free throws at a very high percentage as well as distribute the ball to other players. Conor is an unselfish player and can also defend well. His greatest attribute might just be his high basketball IQ. He has a tremendous understanding of the game and also has great court vision. We're excited to have Conor in our program."
"I choose Cornerstone because I really felt like I fit into the basketball program the best compared to other schools. I also felt that Cornerstone was the most interested in me playing for them."
