Senior Youssou Ndoye and junior Marcus Posley made the A10 Third Team with Ndoye also making the league’s all-defensive squad. Freshman Jay Adams was snubbed and didn’t make the all-rookie team despite likely being deserving of that award IMO. Shane provides a compelling argument for Jay to be on the league’s all-rookie team over URI freshman guard Jared Terrel below. I’m not up in arms over it to be honest with you but if you’re a numbers guy and you like to vote off stats there’s certainly something here…URI finishing in the top four likely sealed the deal however as team performance does factor into these votes more often than not.

St. Bonaventure senior center Youssou Ndoye and junior guard Marcus Posley have earned Atlantic 10 All-Conference honors, the A-10 announced Tuesday. Ndoye and Posley were both named to the All-Conference third team, while Ndoye also was selected to the five-player All-Defensive team in voting of the A-10’s head coaches.
Entering this week’s A-10 Championship Tournament, Ndoye is one of two A-10 players who are averaging a double-double at 11.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per game. The seven-foot native of Dakar, Senegal, ranks second in the A-10 in both rebounding and blocked shots (2.6 per game). Ndoye has 11 double-doubles this year, seven more than he had last season, and his 286 rebounds so far this season ranks 10th on St. Bonaventure’s single-season rebounding list.
This is Ndoye’s first all-conference recognition.
Posley, who is in his first season with the Bonnies, is the sixth-leading scorer in the Atlantic 10 at 16.5 points per game. He has ten 20-point games this season, the third-most of any A-10 player, most recently 29 in the Feb. 28 win over Duquesne. Posley is tied for fourth in the A-10 in three-point field goals per game (2.5) and has made 73 three-pointers this season – already the ninth-best total in team history. He has scored in double figures in 24 of 29 games. The Rockford, Ill., native is also averaging 2.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals per game.
