Drury's Alex Hall named NABC All-American



LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Drury senior guard Alex Hall has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches NCAA-II All-America team, the organization announced on Wednesday.

Hall, a Springfield Kickapoo product, was one of 15 D-II standouts selected to the squad, as voted on by the nation's Division II basketball coaches. He's averaging 19.4 points per game and has led nationally seventh-ranked Drury (28-4) into the NCAA-II Elite Eight for the first time in the program's history when the Panthers take on South Carolina-Aiken at 8:30 p.m. (EST) Thursday at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Ky.

The 6-foot-2 Hall is third all time on the DU scoring charts with 2,111 points over his four-year career as a Panthers' starter and holds the school records for 3-pointers in a career (373) and single game (9 vs. Missouri S & T on December 6 of this season). With 109 treys this season, he needs just four to move past Matt Miller (112 in 1999-2000) to set the single-season mark as well.

Hall, DU's first All-America selection since Chris Mortellaro in 20003-04, is one of four NABC All-America selections still playing, joining Alex Falk of West Liberty, Eric Jean-Guillaume of Franklin Pierce and Clayton Vette of Winona State in that regard.

About the National Association of Basketball Coaches
Located in Kansas City, MO, the NABC was founded in 1927 by Forrest “Phog” Allen, the legendary basketball coach at the University of Kansas.  Allen, a student of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, organized coaches into this collective group to serve as Guardians of the Game.  The NABC currently claims nearly 5,000 members consisting primarily of university and college men's basketball coaches.  All members of the NABC are expected to uphold the core values of being a Guardian of the Game by bringing attention to the positive aspects of the sport of basketball and the role coaches play in the academic and athletic lives of today's student-athletes.  The four core values of being a Guardian of the Game are advocacy, leadership, service and education.  Additional information about the NABC, its programs and membership, can be found at www.nabc.org.
