Posted February 22

Junior guard Amere May (South Haven, MI) and senior center Jonathan Crawley (Richmond, VA) of Saint Augustine’s University were named to the All-CIAA Men’s Basketball Team, and freshman guard Anthony Gaskins (Greenville, NC) of St. Aug was selected to the All-CIAA Men’s Basketball Rookie Team on Saturday, February 22, 2014.

The 12-member All-CIAA squad was nominated by league head coaches and voted on by the head coaches and sports information directors. The five-member All-CIAA Rookie Team was nominated and voted on by the conference sports information directors.

St. Aug is one of three squads in the 12-team league to place two or more players on the All-CIAA team. The other teams are Winston-Salem State University and Livingstone College.

"I am elated for our young men to have these honors bestowed on them," St. Aug Head Coach Tony Sheals said. "They are an example of what our program is all about. It is a testament to the work they put in. I am happy for Amere and the team is happy for him because he is well-deserving. Jon has done everything asked of him. It is a pleasure to see him make the All-CIAA team. It is great for Anthony to be recognized as one of the top freshmen in the league."

A transfer from Delaware State, May was voted CIAA Newcomer of the Week four times and CIAA Player of the Week twice.
