Ronshad Shabazz Honored by Yosef Club
BOONE, N.C. –– Appalachian State University men’s basketball sophomore guard Ronshad Shabazz (Raleigh, N.C./Huntington Prep (W.V.)) has been named the inaugural Yosef Club Student-Athlete of the Month.
The Raleigh, N.C. native, a criminal justice major, was selected as the Yosef Club’s choice to kick off the program based on his performance in the classroom and on the court.
As the basketball season winds down, Shabazz leads the Mountaineers in scoring with 16.5 points per game. He was named third-team all-Sun Belt as announced by the league yesterday afternoon. Earlier this season, Shabazz scored a career-high 36 points on 13-for-24 shooting at Georgia Southern and notched his second career 30-point game in Boone against UTA.
To date, Shabazz has scored 850 career points and remains just 150 away from becoming the 32nd member of the program’s 1,000 point club
