February 27th, 2007 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The slate of Little East Conference basketball post-season honors was released on Tuesday, and three Plymouth State University players were recognized for their strong seasons on the court in 2006-07.

Senior Devin Ruocco (Dover, N.H.) was named to the All-LEC Second Team, and freshmen Mike Chergey (Bow, N.H.) and Karly Gray (Southampton, Mass.) were selected to the LEC men’s and women’s All-Rookie Teams, respectively. They were the highlights on what were sub-par seasons for the Panther squads.


A reserve for three seasons prior to this year, Ruocco (left) had a breakout year to become one of the top players in the LEC. The 6’4” forward averaged 15.9 points a game, scoring 413 points this season after totaling 180 points his first three years combined. Ruocco received LEC weekly honors four times this season; twice as Player of the Week and twice on the Weekly Honor Roll. He has also received accolades this season for his work in the classroom, earning ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District Team honors.

Ruocco ranks third in the LEC in scoring, 13th in rebounding (5.8 per game), eighth in free throw percentage (75.9), and 15th in field goal percentage (46.0). A strong outside shooter, Ruocco also ranks second in the LEC in both three-point baskets made (2.9 per game) and three-point field goal percentage (43.8).


A 6’5” center, Chergey (right) finished third on the team in both scoring (10.4 points per game) and rebounding (4.5 per game). He led the LEC in field goal percentage (59.0 percent) and ranked 15th in free throw percentage (72.2) Chergey was PSU’s leading scorer in four games this season, including a high of 31 points in a win over Rivier College.

A 5’8” guard/forward, Gray (far right) led the Panther women in scoring (9.2 points per game) while also contributing 3.8 rebounds per outing. The only PSU basketball player, man or woman, to start every game this season, she was her team’s leading scorer eight times this year, including the last three games. Her top outing was a 19-point effort in a win over UMass Dartmouth.
