Montana's Jamar Named to Big Sky 1st Team for 3rd Straight Year

Posted: Updated:

OGDEN, Utah - The University of Montana's versatile Kareem Jamar was named to the Big Sky Conference 2013-14 all-league squad for the third year in a row, the conference announced Monday.

Weber State senior guard/forward Davion Berry was selected by the conference head coaches as the Most Valuable Player, while Wildcat guard Jeremy Senglin was tabbed the Freshman of the Year, and sophomore forward Joel Bolomboy was named the Defensive Player of the Year. Northern Arizona junior Quinton Upshur was selected as the Newcomer of the Year. North Dakota's Jamal Webb and Portland State's DaShaun Wiggins shared the league's Top Reserve award.

Jamar, a 6-5 guard/forward from Venice, Calif., led the Grizzlies in all three major categories, averaging 18.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 4.0 assists per game, in helping the Grizzlies to a second place (tie) conference finish with a record of 12-8.

Jamar is currently ranked fourth in the Big Sky in scoring and assists, and 10th in rebounds. He is just the 22nd player in the 50-year history of the Big Sky to earn first team honors three times.

"He's really become a great leader for us this year," said eighth-year Griz head coach Wayne Tinkle. "He's stepped it up more than just statistical categories with his leadership, and we're going to need that down the stretch. I really thought he had an outstanding all-around season this year, and he was the MVP a year ago because he peaked at the right time, and we're going to need him to do the same thing starting this Thursday."

Joining Jamar were teammates Jordan Gregory and Keron DeShields, who were honorable mention all-league selections. Gregory was also an honorable mention pick last season.

Gregory, a 6–2 junior guard from Pueblo, Colo., is currently second on the team in scoring and rebounding, averaging 13.6 points and 3.1 boards per game. He is ranked 46th in the nation in free throw percentage at 86.2% (94-of-109).

A 6-2 junior guard from Baltimore, DeShields is UM's third leading scorer at 12.0 points a game, and second in assists, averaging 2.5 a game. He is ranked eighth (tie) in the league in steals (1.2 pg) and 12th in field goal

percentage (50.0%).
