Three Jaguars earn all-conference basketball honors


Three student-athletes were honored with all-conference recognition as the Governors State women’s and men’s basketball teams recently completed their 2021-22 seasons.

For the men, senior forward DeAndrey Robinson II was named to the All-Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Second Team. He became the first Jaguar to earn All-CCAC honors three-straight seasons after being named second team last year and honorable mention the year before that. Robinson finished second in team scoring, averaging 12.0 points per game. He set a team record for rebounds in a season (251) and was the only player on the team to start all 29 contests.

On the women’s side, first-year guard Cashay Dixon and senior forward Sharnita Breeze received All-CCAC Honorable Mention. Dixon, who joined the team at mid-season, led the team in scoring with 15.9 points per game. She scored 30 points against Calumet St. Joseph on January 8, the highest output by a Jaguar during the season. Breeze, a first team selection last season, ranked second in team scoring, averaging 12.2 points per game. She collected a team-high 208 rebounds this year and finished second on the school’s career scoring list with 1,050 points.

Both basketball teams missed out on the CCAC playoffs this season and finished with identical 10-19 records overall.

GSU has produced 11 all-conference selections this school year across the sports of basketball, cross country, soccer and volleyball.
