ASC Men's Basketball All-Conference Teams, Awards Announced

Posted: Updated:

RICHARDSON, Texas – Texas-Dallas senior forward Kyle Schleigh was named Player of the Year the league office announced in conjunction with the release of the 2014 American Southwest Conference Men's Basketball All-Conference teams on Tuesday (March 4), following a vote of the league's head coaches.

Schleigh's ASC Player of the Year award is one of six honors received by league players. Hardin-Simmons junior center Mawen Maywin received the league's Defensive Player of the Year award. Ozarks guard Josh Ferrell was named Freshman of the Year. Texas-Tyler senior guard Bryce Kemp was named Newcomer of the Year and Sul Ross State sophomore guard Zakk Revelle received Sportsmanship Athlete of the Year honors. Texas-Dallas coach Terry Butterfield was named Coach of the Year.

Schleigh (Houston, Texas / Kingwood HS) received dual honors as the ASC Player of the Year and was also selected to the Defensive Team. Ranked in the top seven in five different league rankings, Schleigh was a dual threat on both sides of the ball. Ranked sixth in assists (4.0) and seventh in scoring (17.5), Schleigh was equally effective defensively ranking first in defensive rebounds (177), tied for sixth in blocks (1.1) and eighth in steals (1.9). The first player in the ASC since 2005 with a triple-double performance, Schleigh recorded the Comets' first-ever triple-double this season and is one of just three players in NCAA Division III with a triple-double on the year. A four-time all-conference selection, Schleigh ranks sixth all-time in league scoring (1,715) and third in rebounds (877).

Maywin (Amarillo, Texas/Caprock HS) was the most dominant defensive presence in the ASC this season. Ranked 11th in NCAA DIII in total blocks (76), Maywin rejected the most shots in the league since 2011 and has 22 more blocks than any conference player this season.

Ferrell (West Fork, Ark./West Fork HS) wasted no time making his mark in college basketball. Leading the ASC in minutes played (911); Ferrell led all league freshmen in scoring (11.8), steals (2.1) and ranked ninth in three-point field goals made (1.9).

Kemp (Spencer, Okla./Spencer HS) ended his season as the only player in the ASC ranked in the top five in steals, three-point field goal percentage, field goal percentage and free-throw percentage. A second-team all-conference selection, Kemp led the ASC and ranks 11th in NCAA DIII in total steals (70), was third in three-pointers (.453) and free-throws (.860) and fifth in field goals (.545).

Revelle (Burnet, Texas/Burnet HS) received his second consecutive ASC Sportsmanship Athlete of the Year award. Starting in 24-of-25 games this season, Revelle was a mainstay at guard for the Lobos shooting .457 from the field and .357 from behind the arc.

Texas-Dallas coach Terry Butterfield was named the ASC Coach of the Year after leading the Comets to a 24-3 record and the regular season conference title.

Hardin-Simmons and East Texas Baptist led all teams with five all-conference selections each. Texas-Dallas received four while Concordia Texas, Mary Hardin-Baylor and Texas-Tyler had three apiece. LeTourneau, Louisiana College, Mississippi College and Ozarks had two selections and Howard Payne and Sul Ross State each had one all-conference recipient.
