Cunningham Makes The Move To USI


University of Southern Indiana Men’s Basketball announced the transfer of 6-foot-0 guard Trevell Cunningham from Grambling State University. Cunningham, who will have one year of eligibility at USI, is the fifth addition since January and the sixth signing of the year by Head Coach Stan Gouard.

“Trevell is the kind of player that dictates the pace of the game, who’s capable of getting to the basket, and setting up his teammates,” Gouard said. “He is what you look for in a point guard who also is very capable of being disruptive defensively.

“Along with Mateo Rivera, Trevell will play a vital role in assisting our young guys and will be called upon to help them understand the landscape of college basketball from a mental and physical standpoint,” continued Gouard. “I am excited for him to be a part of the USI family.”

Cunningham transfers to USI after two seasons at Grambling University, appearing in 52 games and averaging 5.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game for the Tigers. He recorded a two-year high 6.9 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in 2020-21, along with a Grambling career-best 18 points versus Southern University and 11 assists versus Alcorn State University.

The senior transfer began his collegiate career with stops at Trinidad State College (2017-18) and Triton College (2018-19). He averaged 11.9 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 6.3 assists per game at Trinidad State, while posting 8.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per outing at Triton. He scored a four-year college-best 25 points versus Laramie County Community College while playing for Trinidad State.

Prior to his collegiate career, Cunningham lettered in basketball at Arrowhead High School (Hartland, Wisconsin), where he averaged 12.0 points per contest.

In addition to Cunningham, the Eagles have welcomed 6-foot-7 forward Jordan Cousin; 6-foot-3 guard/forward Myles Belyeu; 6-foot-2 guard Isaiah Stafford; 5-foot-10 guard Isaiah Swope; and 6-foot-7 forward Jack Mielke to the squad for next fall.
