UMD's Brandon Myer Named NSIC Player of the Year

Created: February 27, 2020 10:42 PM

After eclipsing 2,000 career points in the UMD men's basketball team's victory Wednesday night, senior forward Brandon Myer was named the NSIC Player of the Year.


Over the season he's led the Bulldogs in scoring, averaging 24.7 points in NSIC games, as well as rebounds with 9.4 a game.

He became UMD's all-time scoring leader in the final regular season contest against Bemidji State University and now has 2,002 points in his career, becoming the first Bulldog to score over 2,000 points.

"His goal was to be NSIC Player of the Year. So for him to really achieve, that I know he won't talk to much about it and he's a pretty humble guy, but I know that's really what drove him through the summer to keep getting better. So he could be the best player in the league," said Head Coach Justin Wieck.

Redshirt freshman guard Drew Blair was named to the All-NSIC Second team and senior forward Alex Illikainen was named as an All-NSIC Honorable Mention.

The Bulldogs will move on to play Winona State University Saturday (Feb. 29) at the Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D. Tipoff against the Warriors is slated for 8 p.m. For the full story click here.
