Both of the Red Storm’s 2020 junior college signees garnered national recognition, as Vince Cole and Isaih Moore earned spots on NJCAA All-America Team.

Cole, a Second Team All-American last season as a freshman, was tabbed to the All-America First Team, while Moore found a spot on the All-America Third Team.

Cole earned NJCAA Region X Player of the Year honors for the second consecutive season after leading USC Salkehatchie to a 27-4 record and the seventh seed in the NJCAA Tournament.

Cole averaged 21.4 points per game, good enough for 22nd in NJCAA Division I, on 51.8 percent shooting, which included a 44.6 percent success rate from beyond the arc.

Cole also ranked second in all of NJCAA Division I by shooting 90.1 percent at the charity stripe.

The South Carolina native scored in double figures 29 times with 18 outings of 20-plus points and four showings with 30 or more, including a season-high 37 points against State College of Florida on November 29.

In that game, Cole connected on seven of a possible eight three-point attempts and went a perfect 12-for-12 from the charity stripe.

In addition to his scoring prowess, Cole also averaged 5.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game.

Moore, who played his freshman year at College of Charleston, led Pearl River Community College to its best season in school history, as the Wildcats entered the NJCAA Tournament with the top national seed and an unblemished 28-0 record.

Moore averaged a near double-double, posting 15.9 points per game on 54.3 percent shooting to go along with 9.1 boards per contest. The 6-foot-10 forward also converted on 79.1 percent of his tries from the charity stripe.

Moore tallied 12 double-doubles on the campaign, including six in his final nine opportunities, and ranked 26 nationally with 2.1 blocks per game.
