Morgan Named Second Team All-Ivy

Led Bulldogs In Scoring, Three-Pointers, Free Throw Percentage

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Senior Austin Morgan was the model of consistency during his career with the Yale men's basketball team. That didn't always result in individual recognition. Fortunately that has changed following another solid season. Morgan, who led the Bulldogs in scoring, has been named to the All-Ivy second team, the first time in his career he earned All-Ivy recognition.

Morgan was the only Yale player to start all 31 games. He averaged 10.9 points, his third straight year as a double figure scorer, and led the team with 60 three-pointers, the seventh most in a season in school history. His .912 free throw percentage (93-of-102) broke the single season school record he set last year, and he had a streak of 33 consecutive made free throws during the season, which tied the Yale record.

Morgan, who is currently fourth in the nation in free throw percentage, finished seventh in the Ivy League in three-point field goals made (1.9 per game) and 11th in scoring.

Morgan, a Reno, Nevada, native, ends his outstanding career with the highest free throw percentage (.859) in school history. In addition, his 199 career three-pointers are the third most all-time at Yale.

Princeton's Ian Hummer was named the Ivy League Player of the Year. Harvard's Siyani Chambers was selected as the Rookie of the Year, and Brown's Cedric Kuakamensah earned Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Hummer, Chambers, Harvard's Wesley Saunders, Cornell's Shonn Miller and Brown's Sean McGonagill earned first team All-Ivy recognition.
