Shoreline Freshman Marquis Armstead and sophomore Adam Johnson, were named to the Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC) men’s basketball 2nd team North Region All-Star Team Friday.
After taking a year off from the team a year ago, Johnson returned for the 2014-15 season to finish sixth in the conference in rebounding with 223, an average of 9.29 per game. He finished second on the team in points scored with 271 and also contributed 24 steals and 15 blocks to the season. He ended the season shooting 42 percent from the field and 34 percent from the three-point arc.
Athletics Program Manager Steve Eskridge said, “Johnson’s a real good kid and a good player and I’m excited to see how far he went this season. After taking a year off, he came back and really worked hard and did what he had to do to succeed. He re-focused and his commitment shows.”
Johnson represented the North in the Sophomore All-Star game Sunday, March 15 at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City, Ore.
Freshman player Armstead finished with team highs in points scored (394) and steals (37). He also added 15 blocks and 53 assists to the team this season.
Eskridge said, “We’re very excited when any of our students make it to this level of play and get that kind of recognition. An All-Star title looks good on their resume and helps them get the attention from four-year schools they deserve. We’re proud of our athletes and the recognition both Johnson and Armstead are receiving.”
