McGrew Named to All-Atlantic Regional Second Team

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. – For the second-straight year West Liberty's Seger Bonifant has been named the Atlantic Region Player of the Year and headlines the 2015-16 Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) All-Atlantic Region Men's Basketball Team.
 
Bonifant, a senior from Berlin, Ohio, also repeated as Mountain East Conference Player of the Year after averaging 25.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game for the Hilltopppers. He led the region in scoring while making 3.4 three-pointers per game and shooting an NCAA-best 51.2 percentage from behind the arc. As the regional player of the year, Bonifant is eligible for national player of the year honors.
 
Joining Bonifant on the All-Atlantic Region first team are Tyree Gaiter of Notre Dame, Brandon Norfleet of Indiana (Pa.), Rob Reed of Concord and Eric Siefert of Wheeling Jesuit. First team all-region selections are eligible for All-America recognition.
 
The second team consists of Matt Bingaya (Fairmont State), Josh Johnson (Kutztown), Stedmon Lemon (Johnson C. Smith), Tanner McGrew (West Virginia Wesleyan) and Will Vorhees (Notre Dame College).
 
Sports information directors from NCAA Division II Atlantic Region schools and conferences selected the two Daktronics All-Region teams. The process concludes with All-American selections announced later in the month. The Atlantic Region consists of schools from the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA), the Mountain East Conference (MEC) and the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC), along with independent Bluefield State.
 
The team is sponsored by the Division II Conference Commissioners Association encourages and promotes Division II athletics and high standards of sportsmanship as important elements of higher education. The CCA is a key communications link among the conferences as they discuss views, policies and regulations that impact Division II intercollegiate athletics and works closely with the NCAA as a communications channel to NCAA Division II member colleges and universities.
