Former Falcon named 2nd team All-Conference for North Ga.
AUGUSTA -– University of North Georgia men's basketball player Ishmael Hollis has been named a member of the 2013 Peach Belt All-Conference Second Team as released by the conference office Tuesday afternoon.
A junior transfer, Hollis has provided the Saints with both a large body under the basket as well as a fluid shot from anywhere on the court this season. He leads the team with 32.0 minutes, 15.4 points and 7.5 rebounds per game which is good enough for 14th and eighth in the PBC.
A Flowery Branch High graduate, Hollis is second on the team with 2.3 three-pointers per game off 39.7% shooting from beyond the arc while his three-point percentage has him 11th in the PBC. In 26 games, he has started 24 while shooting a team third-best 46 percent from the field but leads the Saints with 5.5 field goals per game.
Hollis scored his season-high of 28 points and corralled in a season-high 16 rebounds in the November 10 game at Newberry College as part of his four double-doubles. Also in that game, he converted six three-pointers, another season-high for the 6-8 forward.
The Saints will be making their fourth appearance in the conference tournament since joining the NCAA Division II ranks. North Georgia (15-11, 10-9 PBC) will look to take on Armstrong Atlantic State University, the No. 3 seed out of the East, in the opening round of the PBC Tournament at 3 p.m. on Friday, March 8 in Columbus.
