(Russ Pace/Provided) ¬ The Citadel’s Derrick Henry (left) has been named third-team all-SoCon.

Citadel guard Derrick Henry and forward Zane Najdawi have been named to all-Southern Conference basketball teams in voting by the league’s media.

Henry, a graduate-student transfer from Winthrop, was named to the third-team all-SoCon squad, while the 6-7 Najdawi made the all-freshman team.

Henry, a 6-3, 190-pounder from Covington, Ga., has averaged 16.2 points per game in his only season as a Bulldog, scoring more points this season (501) than in three seasons combined at Winthrop (482).

Najdawi, from Midlothian, Va., averaged 7.2 points and 4.4 rebounds per game, and set a school freshman record for blocked shots with 60 thus far.

Furman guard Stephen Croone was named player of the year by both coaches and media, and both groups chose Chattanooga’s Matt McCall as coach of the year.

The Citadel faces Mercer in the SoCon Tournament at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Asheville, N.C.
