Haverford duo earns all-conference selections

LANCASTER, Pa. – Haverford College's Cam Baker and Brett Cohen have been named All-Centennial Conference honorable mention selections in men's basketball, as released by the league office Wednesday morning.

Baker, a senior, is making his second appearance on the all-conference squad following an honorable mention nod in 2011. Cohen makes his first appearance on the team following his junior campaign with the Fords.

Baker is one of 14 Fords to surpass the 1,000-point career mark. He passed through the milestone barrier in last season's final game and departs the program sixth on the all-time list with 1,393 points.

In addition to making his mark in the offensive end with points, Baker also ascended into the program's top-10 in steals (tie-third), made field goals (sixth), made free throws (sixth), minutes played (third) and games started (seventh).

As he did in the 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons, Baker finished as the team's scoring average leader posting a career-best mark of 17.2 points per outing this year. That mark was third-best within the conference.

Cohen finished the 2012-13 season as the team's rebounding leader with 188 for a season average of 7.8 per game which was second-best in the Centennial. He also surpassed the career milestone of 500 rebounds, one of only 14 in program history to do so, and sits 13th all-time on the Fords' list with 540.

A 14.8 points-per-game mark placed Cohen second on the team and ninth in the conference, and his six double-doubles during the year tied for second-most in the league. He was third on the team in assists with 51 for the season.

The conference's leader in steals per game (2.1), Cohen accumulated a team-high 50 steals while also providing a strong defensive presence in the paint registering a team-high 28 blocks during the year for a per game average of 1.2 which was fifth-best in the Centennial.

The inclusion of Baker and Cohen on the all-Centennial squad marks the second time in the past three seasons in which multiple Fords earned league honors. In 2011, Ian Goldberg '12 (second team), Sam Permutt '11 (honorable mention) and Baker (honorable mention) were part of the postseason all-conference team.
