VESTAL, N.Y.—Freshman guard Jordan Reed has been selected to the Mid-Major Freshman All-American Team by CollegeInsider.com. The website honored 21 players from across the country who play in the 23 Mid-Major conferences listed below.
The national rookie honor comes after two other websites selected Reed as the top rookie in the America East. After leading the conference in rebounding (9.5 rpg.) and finishing second in scoring (16.6 ppg.), Reed was selected as the conference Rookie of the Year by both College Sports Madness and College Hoops Daily.
Reed capped a remarkable freshman season with numerous records and accolades. He became just the second freshman in the America East’s 34-year year history to lead the conference in rebounding and at 6-foot-4, is the shortest player to do so. He came within three points of grabbing the scoring crown as well. Reed is the only first-year player in league history to finish in the top-2 in each category.
On the national level, he is one of just four players to rank in the top-2 in their conference in both scoring and rebounding - and the only freshman. Reed ranked 24th in the country with 13 double-doubles and was 27th in rebounding. He is the only player 6-foot-4 or smaller to appear in the nation’s top 100 rebounders and his average was third-best among all guards across the country. Among freshmen, Reed was sixth in scoring and second in rebounding.
At Binghamton, Reed broke school records for rebounds in a game (18 vs. St. Peter’s on Nov. 18) and season (266). His 13 double-doubles were also a school record and the most of any guard in the country.
The America East coaches voted Reed a third-team all-star.
