Two Cyclone alum rank in top 20 for defensive stoppers this season

Two former Cyclones are showing their stuff at some NCAA Division I universities. Richaun Holmes (2011-12) and Karrington Ward (2012-13) made the Bleacher Report’s list for one of the top 20 defensive stoppers who will be key to their team’s defense this season.

Holmes is ranked 18th, setting Bowling Green University’s record for blocked shots in only two seasons. Karrington Ward was ranked 15th out of Eastern Michigan University, which had a defense nationally ranked 11th or better last season.

While at Moraine Valley, both players helped their teams earn championships in both the NJCAA Region IV and Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference as well as compete at nationals. Both were named NJCAA Division II All-American and Conference Player of the Year while Ward added Region Player of the Year to his resume before transferring.
