Date of competition: Monday, March 20, 2017
Honors continue to pile up for the Menlo College men's basketball team as three players were named to the NAIA Scholar-Athlete team, the most out of any school in the Golden State Athletic Conference: Brad Sawin, William Asplund, Rosendo AmayaWood.
Qualifications for NAIA Scholar-Athlete honors include a 3.50 GPA and at least two full semesters completed at the place of studies while also being at least a junior or senior academically.
Sawin finished his junior season and continued to be an all-around presence for Menlo. A product of Glendale, AZ, Sawin averaged 20.1 minutes per game in 26 games played. He averaged 4.5 points per game while posting an impressive 1.6 assist to turnover ratio, the best on the team.
Asplund is one two seniors to be scholar-athletes. Asplund came to Menlo from Sodertalje, Sweden and made an immediate impact in his lone season on the court. He shot 52.4 percent from the floor in 28 games, while bringing in 4.1 rebounds and 7.1 points per contest. The Gannon University transfer started all but one game for Menlo this season.
AmayaWood transferred to Menlo from Columbia College and provided an immediate boost to post play. In two seasons, AmayaWood shot 46.7 percent from the field, averaged six points per game, and hauled in 4.8 rebounds per game. In 2016-2017, he recorded career highs in starts, steals, and free throw percentage.
