Morrison and Wolters Receive AP All-America Awards

 ELMHURST, Ill. - Oral Roberts' Dominique Morrison and South Dakota State's Nate Wolters were named Associated Press All-America honorable mention giving The Summit League its highest number selections since 1985.

Morrison, The Summit League Player of the Year, averaged 19.8 points per game this season, fifth-best in The Summit League and 19th nationally. He recorded 16 20-point scoring performances and led Oral Roberts to the league's regular season title with a 17-1 record.

Wolters finished one assist shy of becoming just the fifth player in NCAA history to average 20 points, six assists and five rebounds per game in a single season. He led The Summit League with 5.9 assists per game, ranking 19th nationally, and was second in the league in scoring (21.2 ppg) while placing eighth in the NCAA rankings. Wolters earned MVP honors at The Summit League Basketball Championship after leading South Dakota State to its first league title and NCAA Tournament appearance.
