Cincy-bound Caupain paces Cosby's hot start

Posted: Updated:
MIDLOTHIAN, VA (WWBT) -

Troy Caupain has become one of the best basketball players in the Central Region and it will be his play that decides how far Cosby can go this season.

The Titans have started fast, winning five of their first six games, all of which have come within the Dominion District.  Head coach Ron Carr is starting three freshmen in his line-up, so Caupain's contributions are key to Cosby's success.  So far, the senior is exceeding expectations, averaging more than 30 points and 17 rebounds per game.

Caupain will continue his basketball career at the college level, as he'll attend Cincinnati beginning next fall.  He expects to see significant playing time as a freshman for the Bearcats.  Both Caupain and his coaches feel the program is a great fit for him, and he's happy to have the decision on his future already made entering his senior season, making it easier to focus on his final high school campaign.

Cosby will step out of the Dominion District for the first time on Thursday, as the Titans face John Marshall in the first round of the Times Dispatch Invitational Tournament.
