Powell, Young AP Honorable Mention All-SEC


Marshawn Powell and BJ Young each picked up their fourth honors of the post season. They were named honorable mention All-SEC by the Associated Press on Monday.

It’s the first time since the 2005-06 season that two Razorbacks have been named all-league honors by the Associated Press and ninth time since joining the league for the 1991-92 season.  Powell earns his first AP award while Young claimed his second after earning honorable mention honors a year ago.

Along with the AP awards, both players were named second-team All-SEC by the league’s coaches.

Powell scored 14.5 points per game, led the team in rebounding at 5.4 per contest and ranks among the SEC leaders in field goal percentage, fourth, and scoring, ninth. Powell is just the fifth Arkansas player in school history to have 1,000 points, 450 rebounds, 75 blocks and 100 assists in his career.

Young led the Razorbacks in scoring at 15.2 points per game and assists with 105. He had nine 20-point games on the year with a season high 29 against Arizona State in late November.  In just two seasons Young racked up 958 career points.
