BOZEMAN – Tyler Hall’s brilliant career has landed him on top of the Montana State and Big Sky Conference scoring and three-point shooting record books. On Tuesday it landed him First Team All-Big Sky honors.
The senior forward, whose 2,475 career points is 75th in NCAA Division I men’s basketball history, finished third in the Big Sky in conference play in scoring, and his 20.5 points per game over the full season is 38th in the nation. His 3.53 three-point field goals per game leads the Big Sky and is 10th nationally. Hall’s first team honor is the second of his career. The Rock Island, Illinois product is MSU’s only First Team All-Big Sky selection since Bobby Howard in 2010.
“Tyler’s accomplishments speak for themselves,” said Bobcat coach Brian Fish. “What people don’t always see is what a great teammate he is. He’s had an outstanding career and this is a fitting honor during his senior season.”
Junior guard Harald Frey earned Second Team All-Big Sky honors for the second time. His junior season produced a highly productive season. His 2.66 assist-to-turnover ratio is second in the Big Sky and 26th in Division I, and his 5.0 assists per game is third in the league and 69th nationally, while his 84.8% free throw shooting is 63rd in DI.
“Harry has embraced an aggressive, attacking mindset as the conference season has gone,” Fish said, “and when he attacks he’s hard to stop. He’s become a leader, and he’s done a great job in so many facets for this team.”
Montana State faces Idaho in the Big Sky Conference Tournament at approximately 2:30 pm on Wednesday. This year’s tourney is at CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho.
