He scored 20 plus points in eight games this season, reaching double-figure scoring in 19 contests. He totaled 16 double-doubles, a mark that ranks 10th in the nation.
He helped Augustana win the NSIC Championship while holding a 23-2 regular-season record.
Augustana ranked No. 6 in the country, is the top seed in the Central Region, and is the host of the NCAA Division II Central Region Championship taking place Saturday through Tuesday. The Vikings face Southwestern Oklahoma State on Saturday at 5 p.m. Tickets are available at GoAugie.com/D2MBBCentral.
