J.C. Show is one of 10 Binghamton University student-athletes and the only member of the school’s men’s basketball team to make the America East Conference list of Presidential Scholar-Athletes that was released earlier this month.
Show is an Abington Heights graduate and JB Hoops alum.
The America East Presidential Scholar-Athlete award recognizes graduating student-athletes who compiled a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or higher as an undergraduate and earned their undergraduate degrees this year.
Show, who began his college career at Bucknell University and therefore had to sit out a redshirt season after transferring, still has a year of eligibility remaining.
As a graduate student, Show figures to be the top returnee on the 2018-19 Binghamton team.
Show started 29 of 31 games for Binghamton last season, leading the team and ranking 12th in the America East with 13.8 points per game. He also ranked second in the conference in 3-pointers made (2.4/game), eighth in steals (1.3), ninth in 3-point percentage (33.6) and 10th in minutes (32.4).
Although he did not have enough free throw attempts to be considered among the league leaders, Show’s 61-for-70 effort produced a team best 87.1 percent.
Show enters his senior season with 824 career college points.
Earlier, Show was named to the America East men’s basketball All-Academic team. The 10 Presidential Scholar-Athlete awards matches the most ever for Binghamton.
The Bearcats, coached by Dunmore’s Tommy Dempsey, went 11-20 in the 2017-18 season. Their roster also includes Timmy Rose, another JB Hoops alum and a Scranton Prep graduate who will be a senior guard next season.
