Senior forward Carl Hall was named to the second team, and senior guard Malcolm Armstead was named honorable mention.

In addition, the Shockers were also named the Army National Guard Defensive Team of the Year for the third-straight year.

 It marks the second-straight year that a Shocker earned Newcomer of the Year laurels (Carl Hall).

Early is averaging 14.5 points and 5.2 rebounds while helping the Shockers to a 24-7 campaign and second-place finish in the league standings. Four previous Shockers (Hall in 2012, Aaron Hogg in 2003, Robert Elmore in 1975 and Lynbert "Cheese" Johnson in 1976) also earned the league's top honor for first-year players.

Early and Armstead were also named the the Valley's All-Newcomer Team.


The all-bench and most-improved units have been selected by the league's beat writers and will be announced Wednesday (March 6).
