Senior trio earns All-Big Sky accolades

Posted: Updated:
UND Athletics -

For the second consecutive season, senior Troy Huff was a unanimous selection on the All-Big Sky First Team selected by the league's 11 head coaches and announced on Monday by conference officials.

Classmate Jamal Webb was selected as the Co-Reserve of the Year, sharing the honor with Portland State's DaShaun Wiggins. Webb and backcourt mate Aaron Anderson were also named to the honorable mention All-Big Sky team.

Huff, who was one of two unanimous picks as a junior, was one of four Big Sky players picked for the first team on all the ballots. Weber State senior Davion Berry was named the league's MVP, while his teammates Jeremy Senglin (Freshman of the Year) and Joel Bolomboy (Defensive Player of the Year) also picked up individual awards.

Northern Arizona's Quinton Upshur was named the Newcomer of the Year and also earned a spot on the first team along with Huff, Berry, Montana's Kareem Jamar, Sacramento State's Mikh McKinney and Eastern Washington's Tyler Harvey.

Huff was the only Big Sky player to finish in the top five in scoring (19.6; 2nd), rebounding (7.0; 5th) and steals (2.3; 1st) during the regular season. His 19.6 ppg average is a career-high and he now ranks third on UND's all-time scoring charts with 1,940 points.

Webb, who qualified for the Reserve of the Year Award after only starting half of UND's 20 Big Sky games, became the first player in UND history to register four consecutive seasons with 50 steals and 100 assists. He finished fifth this season in Big Sky games in assists (3.9/g) and second in steals (1.8/g).

Anderson, who was a second team All-Big Sky selection a season ago, earned honorable mention honors after averaging 10.0 ppg in league play and shooting 84.7 percent from the free throw line.
