Maryland men’s basketball graduate guard Jahmir Young was named to the U.S. Basketball Writers Association All-District III Team and the National Association of Basketball Coaches All-District VII Second Team, it was announced Tuesday.
The Upper Marlboro, Maryland native has been instrumental in his return to his home state, helping lead the Terps to a 21-12 finish and a No. 8 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Young spent three years at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where he was twice named to the All-Conference USA first team.
He leads all Terps in scoring this season, averaging 16.1 points per game. His 531 points rank 36th in program history for a single-season. He earned a spot on the All-Big Ten second team, which was announced last week.
Young currently ranks 12th among active NCAA players with 16.5 career points per game, and will get his first shot in the NCAA Tournament as the Terps take on No. 9-seed West Virginia at 12:15 p.m. on Sunday. The game will be available on CBS.
