KANSAS CITY, Mo. – For the first time since the 1996-97 season the Salisbury University men's basketball team has had a player named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches All-District Team, as junior Gordon Jeter was selected to the second team of the Middle Atlantic District, the organization announced on Monday.
Jeter was a key piece of the Salisbury team that went 21-7 this past season, advancing to the Capital Athletic Conference championship game and the program's seventh appearance in the NCAA tournament.
This year, the Easton, Maryland native led a balanced Salisbury offense, scoring 13.6 points per game with a team-best .492 field goal percentage. He led the way on the boards, pulling down 7.0 rebounds per game, including 2.39 offensive rebounds per game, which ranked third in the CAC.
Jeter can play inside or out, hitting 36 percent of his three-point attempts, while also blocking a team-high 30 shots, which ranked seventh in the league. He was also a 75-percent free throw shooter, notching over 100 points from the charity stripe in 2015-16.
Jeter is the first NABC All-District pick for the Sea Gulls since Adam DiRichie was a second-team selection following the 1996-97 season.
