Three St. Aug players earn All-CIAA Postseason basketball honors

Posted February 22, 2014

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."

May ranks third in the CIAA in points per game (19.5). Armed with a potent rainbow jumper, May scored in double figures 21 of 25 games including three contests of more than 30 points. He poured in 39 points in a victory over Washington Adventist on November 30, 2013, 36 points in a win over Pfeiffer on November 16, 2013 and 35 points in a loss to Fayetteville State on February 1, 2014. A transfer from Delaware State, May was voted CIAA Newcomer of the Week four times and CIAA Player of the Week twice.

Crawley leads the CIAA in field goal percentage (61.2) and blocks per game (2.0). A 6-foot-9, 325-pound force in the paint, Crawley also ranks fourth in the conference in rebounds per game (8.1). He is the team’s third-leading scorer (11.8 points per game). Nationally, Crawley ranks 20th in Division II in offensive rebounds per game (3.56), 34th in total blocks (50) and 45th in blocked shots per game. He scored a career-high 20 points in a win against Morris on November 11, 2013 and a victory against Allen on December 14, 2013. Crawley pulled down a career-high 15 rebounds in a win against Washington Adventist and a loss to Livingstone on February 19, 2014.

Gaskins has been a key contributor for the Falcons in his first season. He played in 24 of 25 games and has started seven. He ranks third on the team in three-point field goals made (20) and tied for fourth in assists per game (1.6). He averages 4.4 points per game in 16.7 minutes of playing time. Gaskins scored a career-high 15 points in a win against Pfeiffer. He also had career-highs of eight assists and three steals against Pfeiffer. Gaskins also scored 12 points in a win against Allen and 10 points in a loss to Barton on November 23, 2013. He was named CIAA Rookie of the Week for performance against Barton.

The Men’s and Women’s All-CIAA Teams and All-CIAA Rookie Teams in addition to the Players of the Year and Coaches of the Year will be honored at the CIAA Basketball Tournament Tip-Off Luncheon at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C., on Monday, February 24, 2014 at noon.
