Trio of SU Men’s Hoopsters Earn All-League Status

MADISON, N.J. – Three Susquehanna men’s basketball players were named to the All-Landmark Conference Team, announced on Monday.

Senior guard Spenser Spencer (Seattle, Wash./Lakeside) was the lone Crusader on the First Team while junior J.T. Wilson (Sparta, N.J./Pope John XXIII Regional) and sophomore Harley Sellinger (Mill Hall, Pa./Central Mountain) were Second-Team honorees.

Spencer capped off his stellar career with a historic senior season. He started 23 of 24 games and led the team in scoring (19.3 ppg) and points (462). With his 462 points, he leaves as the third all-time leading scorer with 1,542 career points. Spencer also shot 42.9 percent from the floor, 40.3 percent from three-point range and sank 82 percent of his free throw attempts. He also managed to pull down 3.6 boards per game and had 64 assists and 31 steals on the season.

Among league players, Spencer was third in scoring and fifth in free throw percentage. This marked his third All-League accolade.

Wilson, meanwhile, was also a double-digit scorer for SU this season, averaging 12.4 points per game while also averaging 5.0 rebounds per game. He shot an impressive 54 percent from the floor, the third-best mark in the league, and sank a league-leading 47 percent of his three pointers.  This marked the first All-Conference award for the junior forward.

Finally, Sellinger followed his Rookie of the Year season from a year ago with an even more impressive sophomore campaign. He was second on the team in scoring (12.7 ppg) and led the Crusaders with 6.9 rebounds per game. In total, he pulled down 166 boards, 50 of which were of the offensive variety. He also boasted a team-best 20 blocks on the year.

Among his conference peers, he led the league in field goal percentage (58.8), was second in overall rebounding, third in defensive rebounds (116) and sixth in blocks.

Susquehanna ended its season with a 15-10 overall record and earned the No. 2 seed in the Landmark Conference Tournament before falling to Juniata in the semifinals this past Wednesday night.
