Cook started in 26 of CCC’s 27 games and led the Raiders in scoring and rebounding with 14 points and 10.5 rebounds per game. He recorded a team-best 13 double-doubles in 2021-22.

“I am extremely proud of Kevin, and he absolutely deserves this recognition,” said CCC head coach John Ritzdorf. “His performance kept improving throughout the season and he was playing his best basketball in our toughest games late in the year. Kevin cared more about winning than he did about his individual statistics. Off the floor, he was our emotional leader and really energized our team.”

Cook was previously named to the NJCAA All-Region 9 Team and the Nebraska Community College Athletic Conference All-Conference Team.

A graduate of Bay View High School in Milwaukee, Wis., Cook began his collegiate basketball career at Iowa Lakes Community College in Estherville, Iowa, before transferring to CCC. He is a business major and is on track to graduate in May.
