Will Wade SoCon Award Quotes

2013-14 Southern Conference Awards | March 4, 2014

Thoughts on Z. Mason, Defensive Player of the Year:

“Happy for Z. Great to see him rewarded for his hard work, and everything he did for our team this year. He certainly deserves Defensive Player of the Year and first team all-conference.

“He did a phenomenal job for us defensively leading the league in rebounding and defensive rebounding to go with being the top shot blocker in the conference by a pretty wide margin.”

Thoughts on Casey Jones, All-SoCon
Casey Jones has been a vital part in what we do. He makes a lot of winning plays, and it’s great to see the coaches recognize him for that. All the little toughness plays…offensive rebounding, he does a great job getting to the rim and making plays happen. He is by far the hardest worker on our team. You’re always happy when hard work gets rewarded.”

On the program’s award mentions:
Awards are based on winning. This is a by-product of doing things the right way during the season, being successful and finding ways to win. I’m certainly happy to see our players rewarded. All the awards are based on their hard work on and off the court. From Z. to Andrew Houts, none of this is possible without a complete team effort…players, coaches and staff.”
