HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – SMU guard Nic Moore, who led the Mustangs to the American Athletic Conference regular-season title, has been named the conference’s player of the year.
Temple coach Fran Dunphy, whose Owls finished the regular season at 22-9, received the league’s coach of the year award Thursday and UConn freshman Daniel Hamilton was voted rookie of the year by the league’s coaches.
Moore averaged 14.4 points and 5.2 assists per game. He led the league in 3-point and free throw shooting as well as free throw percentage. He hit 43 percent of his 3-pointers and 87.5 percent of his foul shots.
Hamilton averaged 10.8 points and 7.6 rebounds while playing both swingman and power forward for the Huskies (17-13).
Dunphy could earn his 500th win as a head coach when the fourth-seeded Owls face fifth-seeded Memphis (18-13) on Friday.
