Monday, March 24, 2014

SHREVEPORT, La. – Centenary’s Jonathan Blount was named to the 2014 Men’s DIII News All-America Team as announced by the association on Monday morning. Blount was a DIII News Honorable Mention All-America selection last season.

The Shreveport, La., native led the league in scoring for the second consecutive year and set new single-season SCAC records this season for scoring average (24.4 ppg) and total points (682). He shot 49.7 percent from the field which was seventh in the SCAC, 43.4 percent from three-point range which ranked fourth in the SCAC and 85 percent from the free-throw line which was third in the conference.

A four-time SCAC Player-of-the-Week this season, Blount set a new Centenary single-game scoring record with 53 points against Open Bible College on Feb. 18 and finished his career with 1,573 career points - eighth in program history and ninth in the conference’s history.

Blount was a two-time SCAC Player of the Year, becoming just the second men's player in league history to earn back-to-back POTY honors and the first since Sewanee's Ryan Harrigan in 1996-97 and 1997-98. He and Harrigan also share the distinction of being the only two players in SCAC history to be named NABC First Team All-District two consecutive years.

Centenary finished the season with an 18-10 record marking the first winning season since the 2002-03 team went 16-12 and the most wins in a season since the 1989-90 team went 22-8.
