Berkeley College senior Ricardo Ayuso, a senior, was named United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) Division II Player of the Year and a First Team All-American..

His teammate, junior Deylon Bovell, earned Honorable Mention recognition.

“I’m extremely gratified for Ricardo, because I know how hard he worked not only this season, but throughout his tenure as a member of this program,” said coach Jonathan Pena. “As for Deylon, he was a key contributor in helping us accomplish some of our primary goals this past season.”

Ayuso, a Brooklyn resident and graduate of Redemption Christian Academy, averaged a team-best 16.3 points per game, while also leading the Knights in steals per game with two.

His 59 three-point baskets led Berkeley, and the senior scored in double figures 18 times, while also netting 20 points or more on five different occasions. He currently has 1,026 points as a Knight, and he also was tabbed as an HVIAC All-Conference player.

Bovell, also a Brooklyn resident and graduate of Transit Tech CTE High School, averaged 14.3 points per game, which was good for second highest. His 5.9 rebounds led Berkeley College, and his 1.6 steals per game were tied with Anthony Hemingway for second most on the squad.
