Maine’s Andrew Fleming Earns Second-Team All-Conference Honors
Junior forward Andrew Fleming has been selected for Second-Team All-Conference honors after leading the UMaine Black Bears in scoring, rebounding and assists this season.
He poured in 13.8 points per game, while also averaging 7 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. Fleming posted four double-doubles and reached double figures in scoring in 22 of the 28 games he appeared in this season.
On Jan. 30, Fleming became the first Division I men's basketball player in at least 20 seasons to shoot 90 percent while attempting at least 20 field goals in a single game. In that game, a 78-59 victory against UMass Lowell, he totaled a career-high 38 points on 18-of-20 shooting.
His season ended on Feb. 23, when he took a horrific spill while attempting a breakaway dunk against Stony Brook. Fleming broke his left wrist and was placed in the concussion protocol.
The conference handed the Kevin Roberson Player of the Year award to Vermont forward Anthony Lamb, while Vermont's John Becker was named Coach of the Year.
Black Bears senior Ilija Stojiljkovic was named to the All-Academic Team, as he holds a team-high 3.75 GPA as a management major with a concentration in information systems.
