SPARTANBURG, S.C. – ETSU senior guard Desonta Bradford and Wofford junior guard Fletcher Magee received honorable mention on the Associated Press 2017-18 All-America team, released Tuesday.

Bradford, the league coaches’ selection as the 2017-18 Southern Conference Player of the Year, led the Buccaneers in multiple areas throughout the season and was in the top 10 in SoCon play in categories such as scoring (15.4 ppg), rebounding (5.8 rpg), assists (3.5 apg), steals (1.9 spg) and minutes played (32.6 mpg).

Bradford and the Bucs enjoyed a successful season in 2017-18, going 25-9 overall and reaching the SoCon tournament title game for a third straight season.

Magee is the third Terrier to be named AP All-America honorable mention and the first since the 2014-15 season. Karl Cochran took home the honor in 2014-15 and Noah Dahlman earned the recognition in 2009-10.

The Malcolm U. Pitt (media) SoCon Player of the Year led the conference in scoring all season, averaging 22.1 points per contest. Magee led the NCAA in total 3-pointers made with 148, fifth all-time in the NCAA Division I ranks for 3s in a single season. His 4.35 3s per game ranked second nationally, while he was seventh from the free-throw line, shooting 90.7 percent.

He scored 751 points in the 2017-18 season, 11th-most in the country, and set the Wofford record for points in a season. He also set the record for 3s made in a career and in a single season and currently sits in eighth place in program history in scoring.
