Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Former State Fair Community College Roadrunner and current Baylor University Bear Kenny Chery has been named a Phillips 66 Big 12 Conference Newcomer of the Week for the second time. A panel of media members voted on the award Feb. 17.
Chery also received the award Dec. 9, 2013.
The junior guard helped lead his team to a double-overtime victory over Kansas State University on Saturday. He also helped his team to a win over Texas Christian University on Feb. 11. The wins were the first back-to-back Big 12 wins for Baylor this season.
Chery recorded the sixth triple-double in Baylor history and the first in a conference game. He posted 20 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds in the victory over Kansas State and played a career-high 44 minutes in the contest.
“He’s having a good year,” said Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Thomas. “He just stepped in at Baylor and has done a great job. He definitely deserves the success he’s having this year. I’m very proud of him and it couldn’t happen to a better person.”
The Montreal, Quebec, native ranks fourth on the team in scoring with an average 10.3 points per game. He leads the team in free-throw percentage at 84 percent. He leads the team in assists with 119 and is third on the team in minutes played, averaging 27.2 minutes per game.
Chery had a stellar two-year career as a Roadrunner, earning honorable mention All-American honors as a sophomore and All-Region 16 honors twice. Chery authored two of the top-10 highest scoring seasons in Roadrunner history. He capped his career scoring 16.4 points per contest, which places him fourth on SFCC’s all-time list. He also finished fifth and ninth in single-season assists, dishing out 3.96 assists as a freshman and 3.75 assists as a sophomore.
