Another notch in Herrera’s belt

Earlier this month, from the iconic shoe/apparel manufacturer’s base town of Beaverton, Oregon, came a release that former Ignacio standout Alex Herrera earned All-America accolades for the second time this season.  Previously named Second Team All-America by Basketball Times, Fort Lewis College’s junior center was named Fourth Team All-America by the Division II Bulletin.

Also on the honored five were:

California Baptist [Riverside, Calif.] University freshman guard Ryan Berg (17.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.8 apg), Delta State [West Cleveland, Miss.] senior forward Willie Readus (19.5 ppg, 10.8 rpg, 1.5 apg), Northwest Missouri [Maryville, Mo.] State senior guard DeShaun Cooper (17.4, 3.6, 4.0), and Lock Haven [Pa.] junior guard Wali Hepburn (21.9, 5.7, 4.3).

Herrera averaged 18.9 points, nine rebounds and 1.1 assists for the Skyhawks in 2013-14, as well as a well-documented 3.5 blocks per game (a new Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference single-season best) in helping FLC go 18-10 overall.

A five-time RMAC Defensive Player-of-the-Week honoree, Herrera was named the circuit’s Defensive Player-of-the-Year and First Team All-Conference.
