Mike Daum Earns NABC All American Honors

KANSAS CITY – South Dakota State’s Mike Daum was announced Tuesday as a Third Team All-American by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Selected and voted on by member coaches of the NABC in Division I, Daum was named to the organization’s All-District Team a week ago alongside teammate David Jenkins, and picks up All-American honors from the group for the first time in his career.

Daum averaged 25.3 points and 11.7 rebounds per game for the season, finishing as the only player with a 25-10 double-double average in the NCAA. The three-time Summit League Player of the Year concluded his career as the school’s all-time leader in points, rebounds, field goals, 3-pointers and free throws. He is seventh all-time in NCAA history with 3,067 career points.

Daum earned Third Team All-American honors from the USBWA earlier this month, and the last two years as been an honorable mention All-American for the Associated Press.

All members of the NABC are expected to uphold the core values of being a Guardian of the Game by bringing attention to the positive aspects of the sport of basketball and the role coaches play in the academic and athletic lives of today’s student-athletes. The four core values of being a Guardian of the Game are advocacy, leadership, service and education. Additional information about the NABC, its programs and membership, can be found at www.nabc.com.

South Dakota State concluded its 2018-19 campaign the National Invitation Tournament, reaching the postseason for the eighth-straight year at the Division I level.
