Newport News, Va., finished fourth in Division I in scoring, averaging 24.8 points per game, and 11th in assists per game (6.5). He was the only
player in Division I in the top 15 in both categories. Marrow helped lead the Pirates to a fifth place finish in their second season in the Big
South Conference and a finals appearance in the championship game. Marrow becomes the first player to repeat as winner in the awards history.
Livingstone guard Roger Ray has been named BOXTOROW Division II Player of the Year. The senior from Raleigh, N.C. led the CIAA and ranked 14th in
Division II in scoring (23.6), led the CIAA in assists (5.0), and was second in the CIAA in three-point field goal percentage (.367). He had six
games in which he scored 30 or more points including a 45-point performance against Virginia State (12/5/19), where he also recorded a triple double with 10 assists and 10 rebounds.
North Carolina A&T acting head coach Will Jones and Tennessee State head coach Brian “Penny” Collins have been named BOXTOROW Division I Coaches of the Year.
Jones took on the roll as acting head coach in late December and led the Aggies to a 17-15 overall record and a second place finish in the MEAC.
His record after taking over the program was 14-5. Collins, in his second year, led one of the best turnarounds in Division I, as the Tigers
finished the season 18-15, 9-9 in OVC play. The Tigers had been invited to play in the College Invitational Tournament (CIT). TSU went 9-21 during
the 2018-19 season.
Miles coach Fred Watson was named BOXTOROW Division II Coach of the Year. In his second season at Miles, Watson has led the Golden Bears to the SIAC Tournament championship for the second straight season. Miles finished the 2019-20 season 24-4 and won 16 of its last 17 games. Watson becomes the second coach to win the award as head coach of two different teams (Lonnie Blow), winning the award as head coach at Benedict in 2013.
