3 Brown Bears Receive All-Ivy Honors

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

 

The Ivy League announced its awards for the 2012-2013 men's basketball season and the Brown Bears were well-represented.

Junior point guard Sean McGonagill (14.0p, 4.5r, 3.9a) was named First Team All-Ivy.  Senior Matt Sullivan (14.1p, 4.3r, 2.2a) was named Second Team All-Ivy while freshman forward Cedric Kuakumensah (Ivy League-leading 66 blocked shots) was named Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year.

The awards are well-deserved for the trio which helped turn around a program that finished (8-23) overall and (2-12) in the Ivy League a season ago to a respectable (13-15) record which included a 4th place finish in league play at (7-7).

The one ommission for Brown may have been the lack of Rafael Maia who seemed deserving of honorable mention honors.  Still, the individual accolades are welcome for a program that is seemingly on the rise under first-year head coach Mike Martin.

To no one's surprise, Princeton's Ian Hummer (16.3p, 6.4r, 4.1a) was named Ivy League Player of the Year.  Likewise, it was no surprise that Harvard fab frosh Siyani Chambers (12.9p, 5.7a) was named the league's Rookie of the Year.

Here's a list of the league's 2012-2013 award winners:
