TULSA, Okla. – Guard Max Guercy capped off a strong rookie campaign by being named to the Conference USA All-Freshman team by a vote of coaches and media, the league announced on Tuesday morning.

The Arleta, Calif. native led the league with five Freshman of the Week honors and was the only rookie to rank in the top three among his classmates in eight different statistical categories. Guercy led the Owls in assists in the regular season with 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals and a 38.1 three-point shooting percentage.

The point guard averages 9.8 points per game on 41.8 percent shooting while starting all 30 games and averaging 31.7 minutes of action. Guercy led Rice in assists in 12 games and scoring four times on the year, including a season-high 21 points on 7-of-9 shooting in Rice’s Jan. 30 win against Houston.

Guercy is joined on the all-conference squad by Tulsa’s James Woodard and D’Andre Wright, Memphis’ Shaq Goodwin and Conference USA Freshman of the Year Danuel House of Houston.

In other awards announced on Tuesday, Memphis players claimed a pair of accolades as D.J. Stephens was honored as C-USA Defensive Player of the Year and Chris Crawford was named the league’s Sixth Man of the Year. Southern Miss’ Dwayne Davis was voted the Conference USA Newcomer of the Year.

Joining Stephens on the all-defensive squad is Southern Miss’ Jonathan Mills, UCF’s Isaiah Sykes, Houston’s TaShawn Thomas and UTEP’s Julian Washburn.
