Sean Sellers Named MAC Freshman of the Year

Ball State HoopsBall State hoops fans have admittedly not had much to cheer about or celebrate during the rebuilding process being championed by Coach James Whitford, but it’s time to break out your celebratin’ shoes for an individual achievement. Cardinal Sean Sellers, fresh off yesterday being named to the All-Freshman Team on Monday, was named the conference’s Freshman of the Year by the media Tuesday morning.

It should have been an easy choice, considering his 12.0 points per game is tops among MAC rookies and his 43.7% 3-point shooting percentage is one of the nation’s best. He also finished fifth in season scoring for rookies in Ball State history, so he’s got that going for him too. Which is nice.

For those that doubt what Coach Whitford can do (or will do if you’re more into the whole forward-thinking thing), it’s the second consecutive season a Ball State freshman has been named the conference’s best. And before you try to indict the lack of results based on that fact, I’d say it speaks more to the dumpster fire that Coach Whitford took over rather than his inability to do the job. But, what do I know?

Congrats to Sean and Go Cards!
