FRANKFORT, Ky. – UVa-Wise's Deon Boyce and Javon Moore each earned second-team all-conference honors at the annual Mid-South Conference banquet held prior to the start of the league tournament.
Boyce averaged 12.1 points and 13.9 rebounds a game en route to the honor. Boyce garnered two weekly player of the week awards in his first season as a Cavalier. Playing in only the second semester, Boyce did not qualify for the Mid-South Conference leader boards. Had he qualified, Boyce would have led the league in rebounding.
Moore averaged 17.8 points per game to rank fifth in the Mid-South while finishing second in the league in steals with 2.53 a contest. The sophomore scored a career-high 31 points in UVa-Wise's league victory over Rio Grande on November 29. The guard missed the final five games of the regular season due to injury.
The Cavaliers will begin Mid-South Tournament play on Friday at 2:00 pm when the team takes on #1 seed and regular season champion Lindsey Wilson College. You can hear the action on www.uvawisecavs.com or on 1350 AM WNVA in Wise County.
