ALBANY, N.Y. – Freshman guard Jordan Reed has been voted third team all-conference by the America East men’s basketball coaches. The conference recognized its all-star teams and major award winners at a reception Friday evening on Albany’s campus. The event kicked off the America East Championship on the men’s side, which includes BU’s quarterfinal matchup against top-seeded Stony Brook at 6 p.m. on Saturday at SEFCU Arena.

Reed, who leads the entire conference in rebounding (9.6 rpg.) and ranks second in scoring (16.7 ppg.) also was named to the All-Rookie team. He is the first BU freshman to earn America East all-conference honors in the school’s 12-year membership.

“I’m proud of Jordan,” head coach Tommy Dempsey said. “He’s had a tremendous freshman season and I think not winning Rookie of the Year will motivate him heading into the off-season. His future is very bright.”

Reed leads the conference with 13 double-doubles, which ranks 15th nationally. He is still bidding to become the first freshman in the 34-year history of the America East to win both the scoring and rebounding statistical categories. Heading into the postseason, Reed (16.66) trails Maine’s Justin Edwards (16.67) by mere percentage points in the scoring race. Among freshmen, Reed ranks fifth in the country in scoring and second in rebounding (25th overall). He is the only player 6-foot-4 or smaller to be among the nation’s top-100 in rebounding.

Currently, Reed is among four players across the country to rank in the top-2 in their conference in both scoring and rebounding.

In 2012-13, Reed broke the school’s single-game (18) and single-season (258) rebound marks. He has scored in double-figures in 26 of 27 collegiate games and led the entire America East in Player of the Game honors (9).

Reed is the first Bearcat to earn all-conference honors since Mahamoud Jabbi was a third-team selection in 2010-11. He also is the third Binghamton All-Rookie selection in the last four years (Dylan Talley in 2009-10 and Ben Dickinson in 2011-12) and is the 18th BU player to earn America East honors.
