ST. LOUIS – UConn sophomore guard Jalen Adams (Roxbury, Mass.) has been named to the U.S. Basketball Writers’ Association All-District I Team, released on Tuesday, following a nationwide vote of its members.
Adams joined 10 other players to be recognized in Dictrict I, which encompasses all of New England. The USBWA names All-District Teams for nine districts across the country.
Adams, who was also named a first team all-conference pick on Tuesday, has led UConn in scoring (14.1) throughout the season and leads the entire American Athletic Conference and is ranked 10th in the country in assists (6.3). In addition, he is averaging 4.3 rebounds per game and is shooting .803 from the foul line.
The Huskies’ point guard was named the AAC Player of the Week on Feb. 20 and has been on the league’s Weekly Honor Roll three times. He has recorded five double-doubles this season, barely missing a triple-double by one rebound against Chaminade.
Joining Adams on the All-District I Team are: Evan Boudreaux of Dartmouth, Rodney Bullock and Kyron Cartwright of Providence, Anthony Lamb of Vermont, Tanner Leizzner of New Hampshire, Hassan Martin and E.C. Matthews of Rhode Island, Jerome Robinson of Boston College, Steven Speith of Brown, and Nisre Zouzoua of Bryant.
