I will start Troy Caupain’s profile by saying he was born in New York, New York, just in case somebody tries to call me out on it. To be honest behind Sean Kilpatrick, Troy Caupain might be one of the most important players in the Cronin era. It might sound crazy, but after SK, Caupain helped stabilize a program looking for direction after losing an All-American, Caupain got to play with SK for a year and that helped him become the steady hand he is today. He has made countless big shots during his time in Clifton, none bigger than the one he main against Purdue in the NCAA Tournament (2015) to push the game to overtime which Cincinnati eventually won.

Caupain is averaging 9.9 points, 4.7 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game. He is eight assists away from 500 career assists, it seems highly likely he will join that club before the end of the season. He will be a member of the 1000 points/500 assists club.
