Wolfe is averaging 21.9 points per game to lead the Chargers. He also leads the team in rebounding (6.9 per game), assists (3.6 per game) and steals (1.5 per game).

“Jay is having an outstanding senior season for us,” said BC head coach Mark Svagera. “He has been a leader on and off the court and his on court production speaks for itself.

“To be listed as one of the top 100 small college basketball players in the country out of thousands of players is certainly a well-deserved honor for Jay.”
