WATERVILLE, Maine --- Colby College junior forward Adam Choice (St. George’s School/Newport, R.I.) was named the State of Maine Player of the Year for the second straight season by the Maine Men’s Basketball Coaches and Writers Association (MMBCWA) on Monday.
Choice also was on the first team and teammate Artie Cutrone (Garden City, N.Y.) made the second team. The head coaches from the 13 college programs in the State of Maine voted on the team.
Choice already has made the D3hoops.com All-Northeast Region third team and was a New England Small College Athletic Conference first team selection. Choice was the only player from a Maine college to make the D3hoops.com All-Northeast Region Team.
Choice, a two-time All-NESCAC selection heading into his senior season next year, was sixth in the conference in scoring (15.7), seventh in free throw percentage (.800, 84-for-105), and 11th in rebounding (5.6). He led the Mules in scoring, free throw percentage, blocked shots, and minutes played (32.9 average). Choice heads into next year with 1,077 points and 486 rebounds in his career.
Cutrone was sixth in the conference in assists (4.04 per game), eighth in steals (1.33), and 13th in points (12.7). Cutrone's big game this past season was 32 points, including a 19-for-24 effort from the foul line, in a victory over Amherst College. He broke a Colby record from 1956 for free throws attempted in one half (18).
Cutrone, who finished his career with 802 points and 227 assists, was named to the NESCAC second team.
