Harrison George

SALEM, VA - At the annual Old Dominion Athletic Conference awards banquet before the conference tournament quarterfinals at the Salem Civic Center, sophomore forward Harrison George (Raleigh, NC/Leesville) was named to the All-ODAC First Team.

George, the 2010 ODAC Rookie of the Year and Honorable Mention selection, receives the award after taking the league by storm with a conference-leading 20.0 points-per-game. He also snared 7.8 rebounds-per-game, which were second only to Rick Maloney of Bridgewater's 8.4 mark. George also led the team and was sixth in the conference in field goal percentage connecting on 181 of his 321 attempts (56.4%).

The sophomore sensation posted eight double-doubles including a stretch of four consecutive double-digit scoring and rebounding. George managed to score in double figures in 24 of his 25 games while pouring in at least 20 on 14 occasions.

Eastern Mennonite's Todd Phillips was named the Kurt Axe Player of the Year, and D.J. Woodmore of Virginia Wesleyan took home ODAC Rookie of the Year honors. Randolph took home two major awards with Clay Nunley winning Bob Johnson Coach of the Year honors and Colton Hunt being named the ODAC/Farm Bureau Scholar Athlete of the Year.

George and the sixth seed Tigers will face the third seeded Runnin' Royals of Eastern Mennonite at 8:00 PM at the Salem Civic Center in the ODAC Quaterfinals.

Below is the full list of the All-ODAC teams.
