WALTHAM, Mass. -- Senior forward Brian Tracey (Bow Mar, Colo./Heritage HS), one of four players in Bentley University men's basketball history to amass both 1500 points and 800 rebounds, has been named to the 2011 Division II All-East first-team by the National Association of Basketball Coaches.
Tracey, who finished his career on Tuesday as Bentley came up just short in the NCAA Division II East Regional final, was previously named to the Daktronics Division II All-East Region team and the All-Northeast-10 first team. He was a second-team All-Conference pick a year ago as a junior.
Tracey led the 24-8 Falcons in scoring (17.2 ppg) and rebounds (8.0 per game) while shooting 48 percent from the field, 40 percent from three and 78 percent from the line. He had 11 20-point games with his 27-point effort Tuesday against Bloomfield College matching his career- and season-best. He had eight double-doubles this season and eight in his postseason career, including three this season.
The 6-foot-5 Tracey closed his career number ten on Bentley's all-time scoring list with 1,547 points, and also ranked in the top ten in games (4th, 131), defensive rebounds (6th, 573) and offensive rebounds (257). His 830 career rebounds is good for 11th in Bentley annals, 19 shy of the top ten.
Tracey, in his four years, was a substantial part of a Bentley program that had a four-year record of 110-23 with three Northeast-10 regular season championships, two NCAA Division II East Regional championships and Elite Eight trips, and four appearances in the Sweet Sixteen.
Also named to the All-East first team by the NABC were Thomas Baudinet (Bloomfield), Gage Daye (Bloomfield), Rob Gutierrez (Saint Rose), Darin Mency (Merrimack) and Isiah Wallace (American International)
