Herron Is All-MIAA Second Team Pick
Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association rebounding champion Jordan Herron was an all-league second team pick, league publicist Greg Chandler announced Tuesday.
A 6-foot, 4-inch sophomore forward from Holt, Herron pulled down nearly 7 ½ rebounds per game. He grabbed at least 10 rebounds in eight games, reaching a high of 14 in the February home date versus Kalamazoo.
His 11.7-point scoring average ranked 16th in the MIAA. He turned in a pair of 20-point games against non-conference foes, including a career-high 22 against Marietta (Ohio) College.
Among his most impressive games was a double-double of 18 points and 13 rebounds in leading Albion to victory over Olivet on the road in January. Herron produced four double-doubles – all in points and rebounds – against MIAA rivals in January and he finished the season with six double-doubles in all.
Under the direction of Head Coach Jody May, Albion finished the season 14-12 overall and third in the MIAA with an 8-6 record against league rivals.
"I'm excited Jordan was voted to the all-MIAA team," May said. "The award is a credit to the team and an indication of the potential Jordan has. The award is something for the program to continue to build on."
