Hempstead, N.Y. - Earlier today, senior guard and star Hofstra Basket Ball player, Charles Jenkins was named to the All-Eastern College Athletic Conference Division I first team (All-ECAC).
There are 287 NCAA institutions, including 90 at the Division I level in the ECAC. These institutions vary in location from Maine to North Carolina. The postseason all-star teams are voted on by coaches of ECAC members.
Some of the members included in the All-ECAC first team are Player of the Year Kemba Walker of Connecticut, Nolan Smith and Kyle Singler of Duke, and Marshon Brooks of Providence. The second team included Jordan Williams pf Maryland, Ryan Rossiter of Siena, John Holland of Boston University, Ashton Gibbs of Pittsburgh and Dwight Hardy of St. John's.
Jenkins is sixth in the country with his average of 22.6 points per game this past season and finished his career with 2,513 points in total. He finished second in Colonial Athletic Association history behind David Robinson of Navy. Jenkins also became the 63rd player in NCAA history to score 2,500 points in a career.
Jenkins was also the CAA Player of the Year for the second year in a row, earned honorable mention All-America honors from the Associated Press and was a third-team All-American selection by Sports Illustrated, Sporting News, and CBS Sports.com, all in addition to his new ECAC accomplishments.
At Hofstra, Jenkins helped the Pride to a 21-12 record for the season and a 14-4 finish in the CAA. This tied it for second, which marked the Pride's highest finish since joining the league in 2001-2002.
