Justice Cuthbertson: Alum Profile

Written By Allison Schubert, Sports Editor

Justice Cuthbertson only sported a Point Park uniform for one season, but in that time, he racked up a 43.8-percent field goal percentage, was 39.5-percent from beyond the arc and led the team with an average 14.4 points per game.

Not only was Cuthbertson a force to be reckoned with on offense, but on the defensive end, he averaged 4.1 rebounds per game with 73-percent of his career rebounds coming defensively.

His journey was not typical of a student-athlete, traversing five different schools in five years. The one thing that remained constant throughout all of that was basketball.

“Basketball is life to me; life being played on 94 feet,” Cuthbertson said.

Upon his graduation from Point Park just last year, Cuthbertson took a brief hiatus from the court.

“At first I stepped away and went into the music industry for a little bit,” Cuthbertson said. “My heart brought me back to basketball.”

Following his passion for the sport, he started I.C.E. Academy (i.c.e.academy on Instagram), a skills training academy for all levels of talent.

“I am an NBA skills trainer now,” Cuthbertson said. “I workout pros all the way down to grassroots athletes.”

The North Carolina native wants to connect his home state to his most recent home of Pittsburgh through his passion, all while passing that passion on to athletes of the future generations.

“It is just about building my own brand and culture from North Carolina to Pittsburgh,” Cuthbertson said. “People are catching on, so I can’t wait to see where this goes.”
