Smith earns All-Region accolade

MINNEAPOLIS – The accolades continue to come in for Salisbury University men's basketball senior Wyatt Smith, who was named this week to the All-Mid-Atlantic Region Second Team.

During the 2016-17 season, Smith paced the Sea Gulls by scoring 15.5 points per game while pulling down eight rebounds per contest. He made 44.1 percent of his tries from the floor and just under 70 from the charity stripe, getting to the line just under six times per game.

He blocked 44 shots this season and finished with 76 in his career, which ranks sixth in program history, despite just playing two years for the Sea Gulls.

He ranked in the top five in 10 different statistical categories in the Capital Athletic Conference, finishing second in the league in double-doubles and total rebounds. He was named a first-team All-CAC performer for the season.

Smith led Salisbury to a 20-8 record during the 2016-17 season and a second-place seed in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament. The Sea Gulls advanced to the championship game and earned an at-large bid into the NCAA tournament, marking the first time in program history that the men's basketball team has won 20 or more games in three-straight seasons, and the first time the team has made three-straight NCAA tournament appearances.
