Vann earns ECAC Division III All-South Second Team honor

CENTERVILLE, Mass. – Salisbury University senior Travon Vann has been named a 2012-13 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III South Men's Basketball Second Team All-Star, the organization announced on Friday.

Vann, who was named to the All-CAC First Team on Feb. 26, was third in the CAC in scoring and rebounding, averaging 19.0 points and eight rebounds per game. He was also fifth in the league in both assists (four) and steals per game (1.7).

Vann earned CAC Men's Basketball Player or Co-Player of the Week four times, including consecutively on Nov. 19 and 26. He was also picked for the first D3hoops.com Team of the Week this season and claimed MVP honors in both the 15th Annual Tip-Off Tournament at Lycoming College and the GU Holiday Tournament, hosted by Gallaudet University.

A 6-foot-3 guard from Frederick, Md., Vann led the team with six double-doubles and poured in a career-high 36 points at Gallaudet on Nov. 23 and grabbed a career-best 18 rebounds twice, at Wesley College on Feb. 16 and Lycoming on Nov. 17.

Vann scored his 1,000th career point in a CAC tournament first-round win over York (Pa.) College Feb. 19. He finished with 1,038 after scoring 564 in three seasons at Division II California (Pa.) University.

Vann was joined on the ECAC Division III All-South squad by CAC foes Paul Reynolds of Wesley, who earned Player of the Year and first-team recognition, and Christian Jackson of Frostburg State University, also a first-team selection.

Salisbury (19-8) advanced to the CAC tournament semifinals as the third seed, falling to Wesley, but had its most wins since the 1996-97 season.
