Centenary Gents claim SCAC Yearly Honors; Three named All-SCAC

SAN ANTONIO, TX (KSLA) -

Information provided Centenary College:

Members of the Centenary men's basketball claimed Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference's yearly awards and as the Gents placed three on the all-conference team as announced by the conference office on Saturday afternoon.

Jonathan Blount was tabbed SCAC Co-Player of the Year while Kendall Demouchet was named SCAC Newcomer of the Year. Head coach Adam Walsh earned SCAC Co-Coach of the Year laurels. Along with his Player of the Year accolade, Blount was also named the conference's first team. Demouchet received third team honors along with teammate Caden Cheramie.

The honor marks the second Player of the Year award for Blount, the conference's single-season scoring leader. The Shreveport, La., native sits ninth all-time in conference in scoring with 1,549 points and eighth in school history. Blount is averaging 24.4 points this season marking the second straight season he's led the conference in scoring.

Cheramie, who was tabbed all-conference honorable mention a season ago, ranks 16th in the conference in scoring with 10.6 points per game and is fourth in assists and steals.

Demcouchet sits 17th among the conference's scoring leaders with 10.3 points per contest and is tied for ninth with five rebounds per game. The freshman from Lafayette, La., is second in the league in blocks with 1.8 per game.

Walsh captures his first Coach of the Year honor after leading the Gents to the second seed in the SCAC Championships and a berth in the title game against top-seeded and host Trinity. Centenary has clinched the program's first winning season since 2003-04 and is the first men's basketball coach at Centenary to earn a conference Coach of the Year laurels since Tommy Vardeman was named the Trans America Athletic Conference Coach of the Year honors in 1989-90 and 1990-91.
