EDISON, N.J. - The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference announces the 2012-2013 All-MAAC Men's Basketball Teams, selected by the MAAC's head coaches.

The First Team is made up of Billy Baron from Canisius College, Lamont Jones from Iona College, Dylon Cormier and Erik Etherly from Loyola University Maryland, and Juan'ya Green and Antoine Mason from Niagara University. Etherly is a repeat selection from last season's First Team. These six players are now eligible to be named the 2012-2013 Pepsi Max MAAC Player of the Year, also selected by the head coaches of the league. The winner will be announced on Thursday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the Postseason Awards Show, located at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. The show will be broadcast live on MAAC.TV.

Baron, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound junior guard from East Greenwich, R.I., had an exciting first season playing for the Golden Griffins. He closed out the regular season ranked fifth in scoring with 16.6 points per game and leading the league in assists, dishing out 5.1 an outing for Canisius. Named the MAAC Player of the Week twice this season, Baron registered double figures in 26 out of 30 games, including a career-high 33 points at Niagara on Feb. 10.

Jones, a 6-foot, 196-pound senior guard from Harlem, N.Y., earned a spot on the All-MAAC First Team after finishing the regular season leading the league in scoring with 23.2 points per game. He netted 45 percent of his attempts from the field and 87 percent from the free throw line. Jones also contributed 3.6 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals a night for the Gaels. A two-time MAAC Player of the Week, he posted double figures in 29 out of 30 games played this year.

Cormier, a 6-foot-2, 172-pound junior guard from Baltimore, Md., averaged 16.6 points per game, good for sixth place on the MAAC scoring chart during the regular season. He is also second in the conference in steals, registering 1.9 takeaways a night for the Greyhounds. Named MAAC Player of the Week on Feb. 18, Cormier started all 30 games for Loyola and posted double digits in 27 of those games.

Etherly, a 6-foot-7, 225-pound graduate student forward from Alexandria, Va., is a repeat selection from last year's All-MAAC First Team. He is eighth in the MAAC in scoring with 16.2 points per game, and seventh in rebounding with 6.3 boards an outing. Etherly is also 12th in the league in field goal percentage (45.1), as well as fifth in both steals (1.5) and blocked shots (1.0). He has netted double-digit points in 22 contests for the Greyhounds and recorded two double-doubles this season.

Green, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound sophomore guard from Philadelphia, Pa., helped lead the Purple Eagles to claim the MAAC regular season title. He is third in the MAAC in scoring with 17.0 points per game. He ranked second in both assists per game (5.0) and assist/turnover ratio (1.8) and third in steals with 1.9 a night. Green connected on 41 percent of his attempts from the field and 80 percent of his attempts from the charity stripe. A two-time MAAC Player of the Week, he netted double-digit points in 25 out of 30 contests for Niagara.

Mason, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound redshirt sophomore guard from Queens, N.Y., finished second in the regular season in scoring with 18.3 points per game as he helped the Purple Eagles earn the top seed in the 2013 MAAC Men's Basketball Championship. He closed out the regular season ranked 10th in free throw percentage (77.0) and 13th in field goal percentage (44.4). Mason recorded double digits in 25 out of the 26 games played for Niagara this season.

The 2012-2013 All-MAAC Second Team is a formidable group as well. The second team is made up of Fairfield University senior guard Derek Needham, Iona junior guard Sean Armand, Manhattan College junior forward/center Rhamel Brown, Rider University senior guard Jonathon Thompson and Siena College senior forward O.D. Anosike.

This season's third team is also a strong unit.
