Standout West Virginia freshman Oscar Tshiebwe earned another honor Monday, being named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 8 First Team.
Tshiebwe was the lone Mountaineer to land on an NABC team. He is joined on the first team by Kansas’s Davin Dotson and Udoka Azubuike, Baylor’s Jared Butler and Texas Tech’s Jahmi’us Ramsey.
The District 8 second team consisted of Tyrese Haliburton (Iowa State), MaCio Teague (Baylor), Kristian Doolittle (Oklahoma), Freddie Gillespie (Baylor) and Desmond Bane (TCU). Baylor’s Scott Drew was named the Coach of the Year.
Tshiebwe was also named to the All-Big 12 second team earlier this month.
Tshiebwe lead the Mountaineers in scoring (11.1 points per game) and rebounding (9.3) this season. He finished second in the Big 12 in rebounds (287) and first in offensive rebounds (128). He finished sixth in the nation in offensive rebounds.
Tshiebwe broke WVU’s record for most rebounds by a freshman, previously held by Warren Baker with 279 in 1974.
