(FINDLAY, Ohio) – The Division II Conference Commissioners Association (CCA) Men's Basketball All-Midwest Region Team has been released and Walsh's Chandler Vaudrin has been named a Second Team selection. Vaudrin (6-7, 200, Uniontown, Ohio/Lake) had perhaps the best sophomore season of anyone in the country with 15.5 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 7.5 assists per game.
The lengthy point guard has recorded four triple-doubles this season, two more than anyone else in the nation regardless of division or association. Many more times he was a rebound or an assist shy of adding to that number, and as a result he finished with 16 double-doubles to not only lead the G-MAC, but currently stand No. 13 in the nation in that category. His assists per game mark currently ranks fourth in Division II.
Defensively Vaudrin was a force as he averaged 2.33 steals per game to also lead the conference and currently ranks No. 11 in the nation. In addition to the aforementioned categories, he also led the conference in field-goal percentage at 56.0, total assists with 240, and total steals with 63.
As a result, Vaudrin was an easy selection to the G-MAC's All-Conference First Team earlier this month.
Ferris State's Zach Hankins, Findlay's Taren Sullivan, Maryville's Nolan Berry, Michigan Tech's Kyle Monroe, and Bellarmine's Adam Eberhard were all named to the DII CCA All-Midwest Region First Team. Hankins was also named Player of the Year.
Joining Vaudrin on the Second Team were Ashland's Wendell Davis, Truman State's Zach Fischer, Findlay's Martyce Kimbrough, and Ferris State's Drew Cushingberry.
The team is voted upon by sports information directors of colleges within each region.
