Master Radford Julian Cunningham
Radford was the defensive heartbeat for the Tigers this season, leading the team in rebounds (9.4 per game) and blocked shots (4.4 per game). Offensively, Radford was a force in the middle, averaging 13.3 points per game, while leading the team in field goal percentage (68%). Head coach Jason Rowe referred to the 6'4" big man as "the anchor of our team" and points to his tough work ethic as the reason for his success. Radford plans to attend college next Fall to study engineering and play basketball.
Cunningham was the primary ball handler for the Tigers. The six-foot lefty guard led the team in scoring with 17.8 points per game while shooting 58% from the field. He also led the team in assists, averaging four per game. The Junior knocked down 59 three point shots and shot an impressive 50% from the three-point arc. He had 96 rebounds and led the team with 46 steals. Coach Rowe says about Cunningham, "he is our floor general, and emerged as our leader. I am excited to see his improvements headed into his Senior season." Cunningham's 29 points in the Monsignor Martin semifinals pushed him over the 1,000 point plateau for his career, becoming the 16th Timon player to reach that milestone.
The Tigers finished with a 19-6 record, advancing to the Monsignor Martin Semifinals.
