Release: 03/03/2014

EDISON, N.J. –  The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference has announced its 2013-14 All-MAAC Men’s Basketball Teams, selected by the MAAC’s head coaches.

The All-MAAC first team is comprised of Billy Baron of Canisius College, George Beamon of Manhattan College, Ike Azotam of Quinnipiac University, and Sean Armand and A.J. English of Iona College. Baron is a repeat selection from last year’s All-MAAC first team, while Beamon was a first-team selection in 2011-12 who was sidelined the majority of last season due to injury. The five players are now eligible to be named the 2013-14 Pepsi MAAC Player of the Year, also selected by the league’s head coaches. The winner will be announced on Friday, March 7 at the Postseason Awards Show, 5:00-6:30 p.m., at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Baron, a 6-2, 195 pound guard from East Greenwich, R.I., was a unanimous first-team All-MAAC choice. Baron was second in the MAAC and third nationally in scoring, averaging 24.4 points per game. Baron was also second in the MAAC with 5.2 assists per game, and third with 1.5 steals. Baron led the MAAC in free throw percentage, hitting .888 from the line, three-point field goals made per game with 3.2, and minutes played per game, with 39.0. He was a four-time Player of the Week in 2013-14.

Beamon, a 6-4, 175-pound guard/forward from Roslyn, N.Y., bounced back after being sidelined most of last year to have an outstanding senior season for the Jaspers. Beamon, also a unanimous first team All-MAAC selection, finished third in the MAAC in scoring, averaging 19.7 points per game. Beamon was also third in the MAAC in free-throw percentage, hitting .849 from the line, and tied for eighth in rebounding with 6.7 boards per game. Beamon was a two--time Player of the Week selection in 2013-14.

Senior guard Sean Armand of Iona was a solid force for the Gaels all year long. The 6-5, 200-pound Armand, from Brooklyn, N.Y., was fourth in the MAAC in scoring with 17.8 points per game and fifth overall in assists with 4.0 per game. Armand was also second in the league in three-pointers made per game with 2.9 and three-point field goal percentage, converting .440 percent. Armand, a two-time MAAC Player of the Week, was a second team All-MAAC selection last year.

Senior Ike Azotam of Quinnipiac led the MAAC in rebounding, with 10.4 boards per game, and registered a league leading 17 double-doubles, number two nationally. The 6-7, 239-pound forward from Boston, Mass., led the MAAC in offensive rebounding with 4.3 per game, and was second on the defensive glass with 6.0 per game. He also averaged 16.4 points per game, eighth best in the MAAC. He was big reason why Quinnipiac led the MAAC, and the country, in rebounding margin and offensive rebounds.  

Sophomore A.J. English of Iona was fifth in the MAAC in scoring, averaging 17.7 points per game, and the third leading playmaker, with 4.3 assists per game. The 6-4, 190-pound guard from Wilmington, Del., was also third in the conference with with 2.7 three-point field goals made per game, and third in minutes played with 36.5 per contest. He bounced back with an outstanding sophomore campaign after being forced to the sidelines in the second half of his freshman season due to injury.  

The 2013-14 All-MAAC Second Team is a talented one as well. The second team is comprised of forward David Laury of Iona, forward Ousmane Drame of Quinnipiac, guard Antoine Mason  of Niagara, swingman Chavaughn Lewis of Marist, forward Daniel Stewart of Rider, and forward/center Rhamel Brown of Manhattan.

The All-MAAC Third team is a formidable group top. Making up the third team are forward Marvin Dominique of Saint Peter’s, guard Zaid Hearst of Quinnipiac, guard Anthony Myles of Rider, guard Michael Alvarado of Manhattan, and guard Rob Poole of Siena.
