BOCA RATON, FL - Sophomore guard Raymond Taylor and senior forward Brett Royster were named to the All-District 24 team by the National Association of Basketball Coaches on Wednesday. District 24 is comprised of all of the Sun Belt schools.
Taylor was named to the first team after averaging 11.7 points and 3.8 assists on the season, including a team-high 14.3 points in Sun Belt play. He was named to the All-Sun Belt first team and earlier this season was the first Owl player in nearly three years to be named Sun Belt Player of the Week.
Royster was named to the All-District second team. He is the Sun Belt's all-time leading shot blocker and was named the conference Defensive Player of the Year for the second year in a row. He averaged 9.6 points and 6.8 rebounds in conference play and broke his own school record for blocked shots in a season.
Both players are now eligible for the State Farm Coaches' All-America Team, which will be announced on April 2 as part of the NCAA Final Four.
