Professional Basketball Player Selects IPZ for Representation
WARREN, NJ, August 17, 2017 – Aaron Cosby, a professional basketball player and proven game-changer, has chosen IPZ for representation, the company announced today.
The 6-foot-3 guard is a native of Louisville, KY, and played collegiately at Seton Hall, Illinois, and Western Kentucky. In his freshman year at Seton Hall, Cosby averaged 7.9 points and 2.1 rebounds per game. The following season with the Pirates, Cosby improved his numbers averaging 12.6 points, 3.0 assists, and 2.5 rebounds per contest, to go along with a 40 percent three-point field goal percentage.
Following his sophomore campaign, Cosby transferred to Illinois and played his first and only season with the Illini in 2014-2015. He averaged 7.8 points and 3.6 rebounds per game. The shooting guard finished out his collegiate career at Western Kentucky and accumulated a stat line of 13.7 points and 3.7 rebounds per game, while connecting on 37 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc and knocking down free throws at an 86 percent success rate.
Cosby was selected by the Erie Bayhawks in the 2016 NBA D-League Draft. He played a stint for the Bayhawks before signing with the Bristol Academy Flyers (BBL – the top-tier league in the United Kingdom) in December. Prior to Cosby’s arrival, the Flyers held a 1-10 record and were at the bottom of league standings. On December 2, Cosby stepped onto the court for Bristol and led them to a 15-9 record over the next 24 games. The Flyers found themselves in the playoffs for the first time in the club’s history. Cosby posted 17.1 points and 3.7 rebounds in 31.2 minutes per game and shot 84 percent from the stripe during his tenure with Bristol.
“I decided to sign with InterperformancesUSA because I wanted to find an agency that I could see myself with for a very long time,” said Cosby. “I know several players that are already clients of InterperformancesUSA and they all speak highly of their experience. This is an agency that has a long list of successful players and I hope to add to that list in the future. My professional career is just beginning and I’m excited to continue with my new representation.”
“Aaron is the perfect example of a player who is smart on and off the court,” said IPZ’s Managing Partner Robert Zito. “He is a true leader; his winning mentality and skillset give him the ability to change the game. We, at IPZ, look forward to working with him and can’t wait to see what his future holds.”
