LEWISTON, Maine — Bates senior guard Bryan Wholey (Marshfield, Mass.) was voted to the D3hoops.com Men’s All-Northeast Region Second Team, announced on Wednesday.
It is the second postseason honor for Wholey, who was voted First Team All-NESCAC earlier this month. Wholey was one of four players from NESCAC schools to be named All-Northeast Region by D3hoops, along with Andrew Olson and Fletcher Walters of Amherst and Jon Pierce of Tufts.
Wholey was a co-captain for the Bobcats, who finished 17-8 and 6-3 in NESCAC play, despite the most youthful roster in the conference. The 6-foot-3, all-purpose guard led the Bobcats in scoring with a career-high 15.8 points per game, ranking third in the conference. In NESCAC contests he averaged a league-best 19.0 points. Wholey was also first in the league in steals, averaging an even 2.0 per game, eighth in assists (3.9 apg) and 10th in free-throw percentage (.790), and was third on the Bobcats in rebounding (4.8 rpg).
Wholey finished his career in Lewiston ninth on Bates’ all-time scoring list with 1,246 points.
Players were nominated for these awards by the Sports Information Directors at the various schools. All SIDs in the region were given the opportunity to vote.
