Unofficial All-Sun Belt freshman basketball team

21 06 2010

I forgot to pass this one along last week, but here’s the final tally on the unofficial All-Sun Belt Freshman Basketball Team. 

The team was voted on by 12 Sun Belt beat writers – including yours truly. 

The only WKU player cracking the list was guard Caden Dickerson. 

And oddly enough, as we know now, perhaps the best player on the list – former Arkansas State guard Brandon Reed – no longer plays in the Sun Belt. 

Without further adieu:
G – Brandon Reed, Arkansas State – Averaged team-high 15.1
points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists. Voted Sun Belt Freshman of the Year and
second team all-conference.
G – Greg Gantt, FAU — Averaged team-high 15.6 points, 2.4
rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.7 steals per game. Was fifth in Sun Belt in
scoring. Was third team all-conference.
G – Ray Taylor, FAU — Averaged 14.2 points, 5.9 assists, 3.0
rebounds and 1.4 steals per game. Was 11th nationally in assists. Was 13th in
Sun Belt in scoring. Was third team all-conference.
F – Chase Hallam, Denver — Averaged 10.1 points, 3.8
rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 steals. Shot 52.8 percent from the floor and
percent from 3-point range.

rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game.

Comeback Player of the Year
