BOSTON – Eastern Kentucky University senior Glenn Cosey was named to the 2013-14 Lou Henson All-America team by CollegeInsider.com. Cosey is also a finalist for the 2014 Lou Henson Award.

The Lou Henson All-America team recognizes the top Mid-Major men’s basketball players. The Lou Henson Award will be given to one of the 30 All-Americans to signify the top player at the Mid-Major level. The winner will be announced at the CollegeInsider.com Awards Banquet on April 4 in Dallas, site of the 2014 Final Four.

Cosey helped the Colonels (24-10) capture the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament championship and earn the program’s eighth NCAA Tournament bid.

The Flint, Mich., native was also chosen first team All-OVC and first team NABC All-District earlier this month.

Cosey averaged 18.7 points, 4.2 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game in 2013-14. He leads the conference in three-pointers made (3.4 per game), is second in assists-to-turnover ratio (2.3), third in free throw shooting (84.1 percent), fourth in scoring, sixth in three-point shooting (42.6 percent) and eighth in assists (4.2 apg).

Cosey hit five 3-pointers and finished with 17 points, three assists and two rebounds in Eastern’s near upset of No. 2 seed Kansas in the NCAA Tournament.

On Jan. 2, Cosey broke the Eastern Kentucky record and tied the OVC mark with 10 three-pointers at Eastern Illinois. He went 11-of-14 from the field, including 10-of-12 from behind the arc, to finish with a career-best 34 points. Cosey dished out a career-high nine assists twice this season.

On Feb. 1, Cosey banked in a 35-footer with 0.4 seconds left to give EKU a 79-78 victory over Southeast Missouri. The shot completed a comeback from 10 points down with 3:57 left and earned the No. 1 spot on SportsCenter’s Top-10 Plays.

In his last regular season game, Cosey scored his 1,000th point in two seasons as a Colonel, becoming the school’s 32nd member of the 1,000-point club.

Against Murray State in the OVC Tournament semifinals on March 7, Cosey broke the single season EKU record for three-pointers (104). He finished with 115 treys this year.

The Flint, Mich., native scored in double figures 33 of the team’s 34 games and eclipsed the 20-point mark 14 times.

In three OVC Tournament games, Cosey averaged 18.3 points, 3.7 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals. He shot 49 percent from the field and 46 percent from three-point range. His three-pointer with 5:29 left in the championship game against Belmont broke a 54-54 tie, gave the Colonels the lead for good and began an 8-0 run.

Cosey has helped EKU to its winningest two-year stretch in program history. Last season the Colonels won a school-record 25 games. With 24 more wins this season, the team broke the previous mark of 42 wins combined in 1945-46 and 1946-47.
