Cain perfected the lost art of the mid-range jumper for Manhattan College from 1981-85. He graduated as the program’s leading scorer with 1,872 points. Only two Manhattan players — Luis Flores (2,046 points, 2001-04) and Keith Bullock (1992 points, 1989-93) — have surpassed Cain over the past 34 seasons.
Cain’s career will be honored at the mecca of basketball history on September 14. His No. 42 Manhattan jersey, along with a biography and video of college highlights, will be on display for one year at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass. The display is part of the “Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Experience” exhibit.
“It’s a nice honor and it’s good to be remembered,” said the 6-foot-7 Cain, whose induction into the MAAC Honor Roll was announced Thursday. “It brings back some good memories.”
Cain, who is the only player in Manhattan history to earn all-MAAC honors in each of his four seasons, still holds Manhattan records in career field goals made (776) and career field goals attempted (1,512). He was the MAAC’s rookie of the year for the 1981-82 season when he averaged 15.3 points.
