WEST HARTFORD, Conn. -- Binghamton University men's basketball senior Mahamoud Jabbi was rewarded for his outstanding season with Third-Team All-Conference and All-Defensive Team accolades from the America East, the league announced this afternoon at its annual Awards Reception.
Jabbi was the lone Bearcat to receive recognition among the 15 all-conference, five all-defensive and five all-rookie selections. Binghamton will continue its season Saturday in the America East tournament quarterfinals after dismantling UMBC 91-65 in Thursday's first round.
A former Division III player who only began playing basketball as a sophomore in high school, Jabbi completed an incredible journey that found him on campus as a walk-on two seasons ago. This year he led the America East in rebounds (9.6 rpg.) and was second in blocks (1.9 bpg.). He pulled down 226 rebounds, breaking the previous record of 223 set by his former teammate and mentor, Reggie Fuller, in 2008-09. In just two seasons, Jabbi has amassed 438 rebounds, which ranks third all-time in BU's Division I tenure.
led the Bearcats with seven double-doubles this season, including
a record five straight in late January. He has scored in double
figures 13 times this season, reaching the 20-point mark three
times. He ranks first on the team in rebounding (7.8 rpg. overall),
steals (30) and blocks (49) and third in scoring (10.1 ppg.).
