Cosey expected to reach 1,000 points and potential college record today!

Glenn Cosey in action earlier this year.

Columbus State’s Glenn Cosey will likely score his 1,000th point for the Cougars during tonight’s final home game of the season. The sophomore point guard has averaged 19 points a game and has now racked up a total of 995 points during his two seasons.

Cosey could also reach another milestone during the game. He’s within striking distance of the all-time school record of 1,011 career points. That mark was set by Bryant Jones during the 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons.

Both of the achievements will be recognized at the end of halftime (just before the start of the second half). In addition, Bryant Jones – who has held the record for 17 years - will be honored at that time. He plans to attend the game and participate in the commemoration. Jones is a graduate of East High School in Columbus. 

Cosey has maintained a 3.4 GPA at Columbus State. He is currently being recruited by Div. I four-year schools. 

Wednesday’s tip off against rival Cincinnati State begins at 7:30 p.m., February 15, in the Delaware Hall Gymnasium on the Columbus State downtown campus. With a 23-3 record, the Cougars are ranked No. 3 in the National Junior College Athletic Association Div. II poll.

SaundersColumbus States Gospel Vocal Ensemble will honor a broadcasting pioneer with Triumph: The Sounds of Victory, a free concert on Saturday, March 10 at 7 p.m. in the Nestor Hall Auditorium. 

The concert is a tribute to James Edward Eddie Saunders, the first African-American disc jockey in Columbus. In 1948, Saunders started the longest running gospel radio program in the country on WVKO called, Sermons & Songs. His television program, Eddie Saunders Presents ran for 20 years.

The ensemble, under the direction of Emma Easton, will re-create his famous radio program by presenting tunes routinely heard from the 1940s to the 1970s. Additionally, various individuals, including local disc jockeys, who personally knew Saunders will recount experiences. Special musical talent is the vocalist Camille Doughty-Banner.
