#Caupainia Has Arrived in Clifton

Caupainia, magic headband, bring the Caupain – call it what you will. Just a 19 year-old sophomore, starting point guard Troy Caupain has been named to the American Weekly Honor Roll for two straight weeks.

More important than the conference recognition, he has now learned how to pick up his team and carry the Cats in crunch time.

In a must-win matchup against UConn last night, Caupain played like a man possessed. He said in the post conference press conference that after the loss in Hartford he wanted to have a better game than all-league, all-everything Ryan Boatright. He more than rose to that occasion. In the W over the Huskies, Caupain was on fire, going 8-9 from the field for a career-high 20 points, 4 boards, 2 assists, 2 blocks, and 1 steal.

Moreover, during the wins over Temple and Houston last week he averaged a team-high 11 points, 4 assists and 3 steals. During the stretch he shot the ball 53.8% from the field and made 3 of 7 3’s, which is a deadly combination for anyone to defend at the point guard position.

Since AAC play began, Caupain ranks near the top of the AAC in free throw percentage, assists and steals. He also ranks among the American’s leaders in assist-to-turnover ratio and leads all Bearcat scorers, averaging just over 10 points a game.

Troy enrolled at UC as a 3-star recruit. It’s safe to say the all-star from Cosby High School in Midlothian, Virginia is living up to the hype!
