HUNTINGTON, Ind. - The Crossroads League announced its postseason awards for the 2016-17 basketball season and among the list of honorees were Huntington University junior Mike Bush, senior Daniel Woll and freshman Konner Platt.
Bush, a transfer from Lake Michigan College, wasted little time establishing himself as one of the best point guards in the league this year and for his efforts was named First Team All-Conference as voted on by the coaches.
Even more impressive than averaging 15.7 points per game, the 5-7 playmaker leads the nation in assists by handing out 10.2 dimes per night. He has logged 17 double doubles which tops the conference and places him 3rd among his NAIA peers.
Bush (South Bend, Ind., John Adams HS) along with Platt lead the league in stellar points this season with 38 apiece. Bush also boasts the conference’s stellar assists and a new school record by dishing out 18 assists against Wright State Lake back on December 17.
Woll has established quite a name for himself in the league having earned All-Conference accolades three straight years. Named Honorable Mention as a sophomore, the 6-7 forward went on to earn Second Team All-Conference honors last season before landing a spot on the Honorable Mention team again this year.
The Columbia City native (Columbia City HS) led the Foresters in scoring (16.3 ppg) rebounding (6.6 rpg), steals (1.4 spg) and blocks (1.2 bpg). He appears in the league standings in eight different top ten statistical categories which includes ranking 3rd in FT percentage (.849), blocks and FG percentage (.564), 4th in defensive rebounds (5.5), 5th in scoring and double doubles (6), 7th in overall rebounds and 9th in steals.
Woll is one of two conference players to tally a triple double this year. He is the only Forester in program history to do so and accomplished this feat in HU’s December 10th game against Asbury when he registered 25 points, 20 rebounds (stellar rebounds in the league) and ten assists.
Platt (Huntington, Ind., Huntington North HS) earned a spot on the All-Freshmen Team. The 6-2 guard made his way into the starting lineup early this season and has become one of the league’s deadliest shooters behind the arc with his 45.2 percentage which ranks him 5th in the Crossroads League and 22nd in the nation. He posted a team-best 56 threes and averaged 11.1 points and 3.1 rebounds per game for the Foresters.
Huntington wrapped up the year with a 16-15 record.
