Cameron Cook Named Second Team All-Conference
FREDERICK, Md.--Junior Cameron Cook of the Hood College men's basketball team was named second team all-conference following a vote by the Commonwealth Conference head coaches, as announced by league officials Friday.
A native of Baltimore, Md., Cook sits atop the Commonwealth statistical charts in three-point field goal percentage (.509) and three-pointers made per game (3.56) after sinking a league-best 89 baskets from behind the arc. His three-point field goal percentage is a single-season school record while his 89 threes are one away from tying the Hood single-season record. According to the latest NCAA Division III national rankings, Cook is also second in the nation in three-point percentage and third in three-pointers made per game.
He buried at least five three-pointers in nine different games this season and on Jan. 12 broke Hood's all-time record for threes, eclipsing the previous record of 176 held by Ryan Junghans '09. Cook enters his senior season with a staggering 224 treys in three seasons in the blue-and-grey.
Cook reached another significant milestone a week after breaking the three-point record when he scored his 1,000th career point Jan. 19 against Messiah, becoming just the fourth Hood men's basketball player to reach the millennial plateau.
Cook was also ranked fourth in the Commonwealth in scoring, averaging 16.2 points per game and 14th in overall field goal percentage (.495). He was Hood's leading scorer 15 times and his 406 points in 2012-13 are the seventh-highest single-season total in program history.
Cook was a first-team all-Capital Athletic Conference selection last season in Hood's final season in the league.
