GCC Men's basketball player Brian Fobbs in action

The Genesee Community College men's basketball team entered the national polls as an honorable mention in the National Junior College Athletic Association's D-II poll released today.

The Cougars are currently second in the Western New York Athletic Conference with a 4-1 record and only behind nationally-ranked No. 9 Monroe Community College with both teams leading the conference in overall play with a dozen wins.

In national statistics that included games as of Jan. 16, the Cougars were No. 8 in free-throw percentage, No. 10 in total points, and No. 13 in points-per-game with 91.3.

The Cougars have been led by the performance of Brian Fobbs, who already has hit double-double performances in double-digit games.

Fobbs leads the country in rebounds-per-game with 13.5 and is third in the nation in points-per-game with 25.9. In WNYAC play, Fobbs also leads the conference in both aforementioned categories and is also second in three-point percentage at 44.1 and third in field-goal shooting at 57.5.

Ten of the Cougars' last dozen games are against conference opponents beginning with a matchup at Niagara County Community College Jan. 24 at 7:30 p.m. A win at MCC Jan. 31 has potential to vault Genesee into the national top-20.
