Nebraska Wesleyan's Ryan Garver was named a first-team NCAA Division III All-American by D3hoops.com on Monday.
The senior forward averaged 15.9 points per game while leading the country in assists at 7.7 per contest. He also was fifth nationally in steals (2.9). Garver, a Lincoln Northeast graduate, scored 20 or more points 10 times, including a 33-point performance in the American Rivers Conference Tournament final.
Garver is the fifth player in NWU program history to receive first-team All-America honors. He was named a second-team All-American earlier by the NABC, and was tabbed the D3hoops.com West region player of the year.
Garver leaves NWU as the school record-holder in career steals and single-season steals.
