Jarryd Cole Gets Street Award

Posted:

IOWA CITY - - Junior-to-be forward Jarryd Cole has been named recipient of the Chris Street Award for the 2008-09 basketball season. 

The Chris Street Award is presented annually to a Hawkeye player, or players, who best exemplify the spirit, enthusiasm and intensity of Chris Street.

"Jarryd was presented this award in the presence of his teammates and coaches before we left for our summer trip," said Head Coach Todd Lickliter.  "Jarryd is appreciative of the honor and understands the significance of receiving this very special award."

Cole (6-7, 250) started nine times and played in all 32 games last year after returning from a season-ending knee injury his rookie campaign.  He led the Black and Gold in rebounding in eight games, while averaging 3.7 points and 3.0 rebounds.  Cole shot a team-best .676 (46-68) from the field.

The native of Kansas City, MO, saw his numbers improve during Big Ten action, averaging 5.3 points and 4.1 rebounds, starting eight of the 18 league contests.  Cole, who was a team co-captain, registered his first career double-double in Iowa's double overtime triumph over Penn State, totaling 14 points and a personal-best 11 rebounds.

Cole was a leader on-and-off the court, serving as a team co-captain last season.  He will again be a co-captain this upcoming year.
