This from the Summit League on an all-district team:Â
Four Summit League menâ€™s basketball players were named as National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) 2011 Division I All-District team selections. The quartet is led by Oaklandâ€™s Keith Benson and IUPUIâ€™s Alex Young, who were each named as first team honorees in District 12. Oral Robertsâ€™ Dominique Morrison and South Dakota Stateâ€™s Nate Wolters received second team recognition.The four selections mark the highest single-season total in Summit League history.
The player that is missing in this is Oakland guard Reggie Hamilton, who was just sensational in the Summit tournament and would have gotten my vote for tourney MVP. I get all the talk about Benson, although he’s not a lottery pick by any means in my mind because he seems too soft. But somebody tell me why Hamilton isn’t a pro prospect? Nobody in the league could guard him and he took over the Southern Utah game by himself.Â Plus, in the title game against ORU, it was Hamilton that provided the gusto in a decisive second half run.
