MINNEAPOLIS - Gallaudet University junior guard/forward Trey Gordon (Talladega, Ala.) was named to the 2014-15 D3hoops.com men's basketball All-East Region third team this week. This is Gordon's first selection to the D3hoops.com All-Region team and the second in school history. Former Bison great Robert Haney Jr. was a two-time third team selection to the 2002-03, 2003-04 All-Middle Atlantic Region.
Gordon is one of two North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) players on the D3hoops.com All-Region team. Lancaster Bible College junior forward CJ Dunston, the conference player of the year, was named to the All-East second team.
Gordon, an All-NEAC first team honoree, is one of the top three-point shooters in Division III as he is ranked seventh in the country for three-point field goal percentage (47.2), 17th in three-point field goals per game (3.36) and 19th in three-point field goals made (84). He was named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America third team last month, the first GU men's basketball player to be named to this team since 1991. Gallaudet (18-7) set a new school record for wins (18), conference wins (14) and broke a 98-year-old record for consecutive wins in a season with 10. The Bison finished the season in the NEAC tournament quarterfinals.
There were 711 nominations for men's and women's basketball all-region consideration. Sports Information Directors (SID) in each region voted on the teams. Schools were contacted multiple times to make sure players were nominated by their respective SID. The All-Region teams include three teams of five players (two teams if the region has 40 or fewer teams), a player of the year, rookie of the year and coach of the year. The Northeast region has four teams due to the amount of schools in its area.
This is the 14th year D3hoops.com has named All-Region teams and the 18th year they have made All-American teams. Players chosen to the D3hoops.com All-Region team are eligible for All-American selection. D3hoops.com will announce its All-American teams this Friday during the Final Four.
