Columbia, Mo. - Missouri Basketball signee Ricardo Ratliffe (Hampton, Va. / Central Florida Community College) was named the 2010 National Junior College Athletic Association David Rowlands Male Student Athlete of the Year this week.
The award is given annually to a male NJCAA student-athlete that displays hard work, discipline, ethics and excellence in community college athletics.
The top junior college recruit coming out of Central Florida Community College in Ocala, Fla., Ratliffe finished his career as a two-time first team all-NJCAA All-American and is one of just 13 players to earn back-to-back first team nods in the history of Division I junior college basketball. The 6-foot-9, 240-pound forward set the school career and single-season scoring records at CFCC, scoring 1,653 points in two years, including 855 points as a sophomore. He also owns the #2 single-season scoring mark of 798 points, which he set as a freshman.
Ratliffe averaged 27.4 points and 11.3 rebounds last season en route to being named the #1 junior college recruit by Rivals.com. He was also named the Florida Community College Activities Association Player of the Year as well as the Mid-Florida Conference Player of the Year.
The Rowlands Award dates back to 1993. NBA standout Shawn Marion (Vincennes University) is among the award's previous winners.
