GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association named Cam Denney to the Men's Basketball All-MIAA Second Team. This is the first time in his career that Denney was named to an All-MIAA Team.
"I am really pleased for Cam to be recognized for being one of the best players in the MIAA this year," said Calvin head coach Kevin Vande Streek. "I think that this is a testament to his versatility in that he led us in rebounding and assists. The rebounding and assists is a rare combination. I guess I am disappointed that we only had one person represented, but I think that is a testament to our teamwork and all of our guys who have contributed throughout the year."
A senior from Bluffton, Indiana, Denney led the MIAA in rebounds with 8.9 per game. He also led the league in rebounds at 125 and in defensive rebounds with 102. He was second in the MIAA in assists at 67.
Denney is the only player to record a triple-double in the MIAA this season with 11 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists at Olivet on Feb. 4.
Joining Denney on the second team was Kyle Dodson of Trine, Tyler Edwards of Alma, Cody Stuive of Hope, Justin Webster of Adrian, and Corey Wheeler of Albion. On the first team was MIAA MVP Harrison Blackledge of Hope, Chad Carlson of Hope, Will Dixon of Trine, Eric Ewing of Olivet, Trevor Gernaant of Alma, and Dante Hawkins of Hope. Trine's Ellis Cummings was named the Defensive Player of the Year.
Denney and the Knights return to the court on Friday in Holland, Michigan, in the semifinals of the MIAA Tournament against Trine. The Knights are the second seed in the tournament after posting 10-4 record in MIAA play.
