Named Atlantic East Conference Rookie of the Year, power forward Voshon Mack is looking to bring home the championship for Cabrini’s men’s basketball team this season. After transferring from Camden County College in 2018, Mack has found his home at Cabrini University.
Mack has been playing basketball since he was 3 years old and found his passion for basketball through his brother who played basketball at Pennsauken High School and his father who played at Long Island University, followed by Spain.
“My father has always been an inspiration and role model for me. He and my brother used to play,” Mack said.
Although only a sophomore, Mack is known to be one of the best on the floor. Standing 6 feet and 5 inches tall, Mack thrives on the court, having blocked 26 shots last season. He also had seven double-doubles.
“Voshon dominates the paint and it’s almost effortless for him,” said DeVahnte Mosley, who is a recent graduate and also played Cabrini basketball.
Despite only being his second year at Cabrini, Mack is already making a name for himself. Mack was named Atlantic East Weekly Honor Roll not once, but twice.
“He gives the team the ability to be versatile defensively and his athleticism comes naturally,” Mosley said. “He works hard and wants to get better.”
Mack practices and trains day in and day out, improving his skills in hopes to win a championship game this season. “I want to win a conference championship with the team, who are like my family,” Mack said.
In spite of the fact the men’s basketball team did not do as well as they intended to last season, Mack worked intensively to help his team and prove his worth. Mack’s most memorable and phenomenal game at Cabrini was the away playoff game at Wesley College.
“Voshon pretty much kept us in the game. He finished with like 30 plus points and 10 plus rebounds,” Mosley said. “But more importantly, he showed flashes of the player that opposing teams are going to have to deal with for the next few years. He’s only going to get better.”
The men’s basketball team will start the season off in Aurora, New York, where they will play Keuka College followed by Wells College on Saturday, Nov. 9, and Sunday, Nov. 10.
