Free Agency Basketball would like to welcome to the family 6-7 forward Christian Cunningham from NCAA Division 1 Jacksonville State. Cunningham recently completed a great career at Jacksonville State helping his team to an overall 24-9 record and semi-final finish in the very tough Ohio Valley Conference. He finished as the league leader in field goal percentage (62.4%). He also finished 4th overall in shot blocks in the conference (1.7). He averaged 8.2 points and 7.7 rebounds during his senior season. He had season highs in points with 17 vs. Eastern Kentucky, and in rebounds with 15 vs. Evansville. As a Junior he led the Ohio Valley Conference in field goal percentage (66.1%) and shot blocks (57). He also recorded a team best 8 double doubles as a junior. As a sophomore he set the schools single season shot block record with 59. Also as a sophomore he scored 19 points vs. Northern Arizona and had 19 rebounds vs. Eastern Illinois. He also blocked 6 shots vs. Murray State his sophomore season. "We are very excited about Christian Cunningham. He comes from a great program at Jacksonville State with a great coach in Ray Harper. I got to see them play a few games this year and was really impressed with Christian. He had a very consistent career in college and I think that will only improve each year as a pro. He is a big time athlete who can defend and rebound, and can score the ball around the basket. I think his potential is unlimited. He also comes from a basketball family that is very supportive. His dad Paul played for the legendary Don Haskins at UTEP, and his brother Kasey played at USC. David Gonzalez and I are really excited to begin the process of getting Christian his first pro job for next season. He is going to be a special pro. *See Senior and Junior Highlight Links Below!
