The New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) named Travis Jocelyn the NJAC Pony Wilson Player of the Year as well as First Team All-NJAC.

Jocelyn, a 2017 graduate of Verona High School and part of its state championship basketball team, is now captain of the men’s basketball team at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). In a release, NJAC said that Jocelyn had a “superb” senior season for the TCNJ Lions, leading the conference with an average of 20.9 points per game, and had 7.1 rebounds per game, which was third highest in the league. Jocelyn shot 46.3% from the field to rank second in the NJAC and 34% from three-point range, which was good for third in the conference.

The NJAC honors are based on voting from the league’s head coaches. Wilbur “Pony” Wilson was the athletic director of Rutgers-Camden from August 1969 to February 1998 and was also its men’s basketball coach, compiling a 187-275 career record.

“As a program, we could not be prouder of our captain, Travis Jocelyn, for winning NJAC Player of the Year,” said TCNJ head coach Matt Goldsmith. “During this past year, he never wavered from his commitment to our program, and his play demonstrated that every time he stepped onto the court. He earned this award through ‘sweat equity.’ Travis has worked for everything he has achieved throughout the past four years, and we are so happy for him. Well-deserved!”
