AUGUSTA, Ga. – Augusta University senior Keshun Sherrill was named for the second-consecutive season to the Peach Belt Preseason All-Conference team on Wednesday. The All-Conference selection is the 11th all time for Augusta and the second in back-to-back years for Sherrill.
The five-players were released from the league offices in Augusta, Ga. The team represents five different PBC institutions and was selected by the league's head coaches. The All-Conference players are Keshun Sherrill of Augusta University, C.J. Wilson of Young Harris, Lander's J.R. Washington, Clayton State's Alfonso Davis, and Francis Marion's Detrek Browning.
Keshun Sherrill (Cleveland, N.C.) was named first-team All-Conference in each of the last two seasons for the Jaguars. The 2013-14 PBC Freshman of the Year averaged 23.3 points per game last season to lead the team and rank third in the Peach Belt.
A 2016 All-District selection by the NABC, the senior from Cleveland, N.C., led the team in scoring, field goals, free throws, threes, steals, and minutes last season. Sherrill is already ninth in PBC history with 1,609 career points. He surpassed the 1,000 point mark in the 2015-16 season.
Sherrill and the Jaguars open play with an exhibition game at Wichita State on Saturday, Nov. 5. The season officially tips Nov. 11 against Mount Olive in Wilson, N.C. on the campus of Barton College. Augusta faces Barton on Nov. 12 before coming back home to host Claflin on Thursday, Nov. 12.
