Kansas City, Mo. - March 18, 2019 - Springfield College's Jake Ross (Northampton, Mass.) was honored with another regional recognition, this time from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), as he was chosen to the Division III All-District Team. The NABC recognizes the best men's collegiate basketball student-athletes and coaches in the division, selected by member coaches of the NABC in NCAA Division III.
Ross was selected to the NABC Northeast Second Team and was one of just 11 student-athletes from the entire region to be honored. The Recreation Management major had previously been named to the D3hoops.com Northeast All-Region First Team earlier this month.
In 23 games this year, Ross averaged 23.8 points per contest in helping a Springfield squad reach the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Championship Semifinals. The junior shot 44% from the field, connecting on 183-of-418 field goal attempts, and was especially efficient from the charity stripe, knocking down 88% of his attempts, going 137-for-155. He also pulled in 303 rebounds, handed out 92 assists, and totaled 39 steals. To date, Ross ranks 14th nationally in points per game and is 26th in free throw percentage, as he scored at least 30 points in six games this season.
Through three seasons with the Pride, Ross has scored 1,906 points, which ranks third most in program history, and has also registered 736 rebounds, 305 assists, and 157 steals.
