Big East Player of the Year, Jae Crowder, Has Owensboro Connection [VIDEO]

In any other year, if you were to hear the name of the Big East Player of the Year, and it wasn’t a Louisville Cardinal, you’d likely pay no attention, whatsoever. But the 2012 winner is a different story, altogether. Jae Crowder, senior forward for the Marquette Golden Eagles, averaged 17.9 points per game this season. What’s the Owensboro connection, you ask? His dad, Corey Crowder, is a Kentucky Wesleyan basketball legend. Corey came to Kentucky Wesleyan from Carrollton High School in Georgia in the late 80s. He played guard-forward for Coach Wayne Chapman’s Panthers and was a member of the 1990 Division II National Championship team. Later, from 1991 to 1995, Corey played pro ball for the Utah Jazz and San Antonio Spurs. And just as Corey was once Great Lakes Valley Conference’s Player of the Year, his son, Jae, has now been named the Big East Player of the Year.
