Sharpe, who joined NKU’s 1,000-point club earlier this year, averaged a career-high 15.1 points per game as the Norse captured their second straight Horizon League Tournament championship. The Bullitt East graduate helped NKU post a 23-9 record by draining a team-best 78 shots from 3-point range.

The second-team all-league performer was also named to the all-tournament team after averaging 18.0 points and 2.5 assists per game during NKU’s two contests in the event. Sharpe led NKU with 53 steals and added 72 assists this season.

The Mt. Washington native ranks 22nd all-time in scoring for the Norse with 1,196 points. Sharpe’s 214 3-pointers are also the ninth most in school history.

In Sharpe’s three seasons at NKU, the Norse were 71-28 (.717 winning percentage) overall and 41-13 (.759) in Horizon League play. Sharpe began his career at Louisville before transferring to NKU in 2017-18.
