Moore and Little Earn SAC Men's Basketball Post-Season Honors

ROCK HILL, SC – Catawba sophomore men’s basketball player Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) has been named First Team All-South Athletic Conference, while Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) earned All-Freshman team honors as announced by the league office on Thursday.  Moore is the league’s #2 scorer, while Little led the SAC in rebounds and blocks.

Moore became just third Catawba player to reach 1,000 career points before his junior year and finished the campaign with a 21.4 scoring average.  He added 6.1 rebounds a contest and shot 87% from the free throw line.  Little grabbed a league-high 8.5 boards a game and swatted away a school-record 85 shots.  He was the team’s second leading scorer at 11.2 points per outing.

Denzail Jones, a guard for the SAC regular season champion Anderson Trojans, was named the conference’s Men’s Basketball Player of the Year.  The junior finished among the SAC leaders in numerous statistical categories, ranking first in steals, eighth in scoring, sixth in assists and seventh in assist-to-turnover ratio.  He averaged 15.7 points-per-game for Anderson, which closed the regular season at 22-4 overall and 17-1 in the SAC.

Dondray Walker, of Newberry, was named the SAC Freshman of the Year after leading Newberry by averaging 16.5 points-per-game, the seventh-highest mark in the conference. Walker was especially lethal from long distance, averaging 2.92 three-pointers made per-game.

After leading his team to a SAC title in just the program’s second year of competing in the conference, Anderson’s Jason Taylor was named the league’s Coach of the Year. Taylor is in his sixth season at Anderson.
