March 5, 2008

Middlebury College men's basketball player Aaron Smith (W. Hartford, Conn.) has earned second-team All-NESCAC honors. The junior forward helped lead the Panthers to their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance this season, as the Panthers travel to Rochester this weekend. Middlebury has also set a school record with 19 wins this season, against just seven losses, six to NCAA Tournament teams.

Smith is second on the squad in scoring (13.8 ppg) while leading the team with 8.5 rebounds/game, placing him second in the league. The junior shoots a league-best .627 from the floor, sixth nationally. Smith has six double-doubles this season and has scored 20+ points on five different occasions.
