Abstract (Document Summary)

As a sophomore he averaged a record 43.6 points in the national JUCO tournament for first-year coach Dick Conover. And it was Conover whom [Alvin Young] views as more of an uncle who steered him toward Niagara.

Playing for a team that has averaged 10 wins over the last five years, Young has lifted it into the league's elite. He scored a career-high 44 points against Siena to lift Niagara to the regular- season title. And today it starts its quest for the tournament crown, and the NCAA berth that comes with it.

He's averaged 15.0 points on 55.6 shooting in the last three, and forward Tariq Kirksay has averaged 18.3 points and 11.0 rebounds over the last eight. Small wonder Iona has won four straight, including a 97-80 rout of second-seeded Siena in the season-finale.
