Guers adds NABC First Team All-East District honors

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Saint Anselm College sophomore Tim Guers added to his accolades this season after being named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) 2017 Coaches' Division II All-East District Team on Monday afternoon.

Honorees were selected and voted on by member coaches of the NABC in NCAA Division II.

Last week, Guers was named to the D2CCA East All-Region Team and also earned All-Northeast-10 Conference First Team honors last month. Guers becomes the 11th player in program history to earn NABC East All-District First Team Honors and is the third-straight selection for the Hawks following Chris Santo (2015) and Mike McCahey (2016).

Guers helped lead the Hawks to a 20-9 overall record by averaging 21.7 points on 44.7% shooting to go with 7.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 36.4 minutes per game.

The sophomore scored in double-figures in 27-of-29 games this year, registering 17 games with 20+ points and seven games with 30+ points. Guers became the first player in program history to score 30+ points in four straight games (Jan. 12-21) and posted his first career triple-double against SNHU on Feb. 21.

Guers has already scored 983 points during his two years on the Hilltop, and his 630 points this year is the sixth-best mark in program history. Guers ranked third in the NE10 in scoring, fifth in minutes per game and ninth in rebounding, and nationally ranked 28th in scoring, 25th in points, 35th in field goals made, and 53rd in free throws made.

This season the Hawks posted their fourth 20-win season in the past five seasons while earning the program's eighth NE10 Tournament Championship last month. Saint Anselm made its 21st NCAA Tournament appearance, and fifth-straight for the first time in program history, but fell in the First Round on Saturday night.

Guers was joined on the All-East District First Team by Southern New Hampshire's Devin Gilligan, Michael Mallory of Southern Connecticut, Charlie Marquardt of Molloy, Tyaire Ponzo-Meek from Wilmington and Justin Reyes of St. Thomas Aquinas.
