Craig, Glenn Tabbed All-A-Sun by League Coaches

Macon, Ga. – USC Upstate seniors Torrey Craig and Ricardo Glenn were both selected to the Atlantic Sun All-Conference Team in a vote by the league's coaches, it was announced on Monday.

Craig was named to the first team after finishing the regular season first in the conference with 16.9 points per game. The Great Falls, S.C., native tied for the league lead with 10 games with at least 20 points, which included a career-high 31 points Nov. 13 at Winthrop. He is attempting to become just the second player in league history to lead the A-Sun in scoring for three consecutive years.

Craig, who is second in the league with 32.6 minutes per game, proved to be one of the top rebounders in the league as well, ending the regular season ranked fourth in the league with 7.1 rebounds per game and second in defensive rebounds per game with 5.0. Additionally, Craig ranks 12th in the league in blocked shots with 0.9 per game.

With his selection, Craig becomes just the eighth player in A-Sun history to earn first team all-conference accolades three seasons. He was also named to the All-Freshman Team in 2011.

Glenn earned a spot on the second team following a senior season that saw him end the regular season first in the league in rebounding (8.0 rpg), offensive rebounds (3.2 orpg) and field goal percentage (.632). He leads the A-Sun with 11 double-doubles and featured a stretch during conference play where he posted double-doubles in four straight games.

He enters the conference tournament ranked 13th in the league with 13.2 points per game and turned in three games with at least 21 points, which includes scoring 21 points and grabbing 14 rebounds in Upstate's Dec. 19 win at South Carolina.
