HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College junior Jeremiah Henry (Semmes, Ala.) has been named to the all-Conference Carolinas men's basketball team for the first time in his career, earning a spot on the league's third team, announced conference officials Friday.
Henry led Lees-McRae (9-17, 8-8 CC) to its most successful season in Coach Scott Polsgrove's tenure, posting the program's best record since joining Conference Carolinas en route to a berth in the league tournament. The Bobcats ranked second in the conference this season in field goal percentage defense, holding league opponents to a 43 percent clip from the floor while limiting their conference foes to a fourth-ranked scoring average of 70.1 points per game.
A native of Semmes, Ala., put together a career season with the Bobcats this winter, averaging 10.2 points and a team-high 7.3 rebounds per game to earn on a spot on the all-conference third team. The 6-6, 210-pound forward posted six double-doubles this season, including a 12-point, 14-rebound performance in a 67-59 win at Limestone College on Jan. 5.
Henry is closing in on a career milestone in the Green and Gold, concluding the season with 433 points in his tenure with the Bobcats, needing just 67 markers next winter to reach the 500-point plateau for his career. The junior captain posted a solid 48.8 percent field goal percentage this season, knocking down 101-of-207 attempts from the floor.
