Ward Named D3hoops.com Preseason All-American
Oglethorpe University men's basketball player Todd Ward of Milford, Conn. has been selected by D3hoops.com as a 2010-2011 Preseason All-American. The 6'5" senior forward who was named to the 2009-2010 D3hoops.com Preseason All-American Second Team was selected as a 2010-2011 All-American Honorable Mention Team member.
Only 25 players from across the nation receive the Preseason All-American designation from D3hoops.com as they assign five members each to a First Team, Second Team, Third Team, Fourth Team and Honorable Mention Team. Ward is the only member of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) to be selected as Preseason All-American.
Last season Ward averaged 13.2 points per game (12th best in SCAC) and 8.8 rebounds per game (2nd best in SCAC). He held the league's fourth best shooting percentage (.476) and blocked the fifth most shots (28). Entering his senior season in 2010-2011, Ward needs only three more points to become only the thirteenth player in SCAC history with over 1,000 points and 600 rebounds for a career.
