MACON, Ga. – Mercer senior Langston Hall added another postseason award to his resume on Wednesday as the point guard was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division I All-District 3 first team.
Hall's selection places him on the ballot for NABC All-American honors, set to be released by the organization later this month. The distinction comes just three days after Hall led the Bears to the 2014 Atlantic Sun Tournament Championship and first berth in the NCAA Tournament since 1985.
Hall's recognition adds to his hardware collection that includes A-Sun Player of the Year, A-Sun All-Conference first team and A-Sun All-Tournament team and A-Sun Tournament MVP honors. District 3 includes teams from the Atlantic Sun Conference and Big South Conference.
Hall joins John Brown (High Point), D.J. Covington (VMI), Torrey Craig (USC Upstate) and Javonte Green (Radford) on the first team. Bernard Thompson (FGCU), Rodney Glasgow (VMI), Brett Comer (FGCU), Andrew Rowsey (UNC Asheville) and Chase Fieler (FGCU) comprise the District 3 second team.
The 2013-14 season has been one of many milestones for Hall, who broke the A-Sun conference record for career assists on March 6 and scored his 1,500th point on Feb. 27. As a senior, Hall has scored 20 or more 11 times and registered 10 or more assists on four occasions.
Hall was also named A-Sun Player of the Week twice this season, scored a career-high 25 points three times and nailed the game-winning 3-pointer with 0.6 seconds left at Ole Miss.
Hall and his teammates await Selection Sunday to find out their draw for next week's NCAA Tournament.
