Sharry Earns All-American Honors

March 21, 2011

Middlebury College men's basketball player Ryan Sharry (Braintree, Mass.) has earned second-team All-American honors from the NABC (National Association of Basketball Coaches). He becomes just the second All-American in school history after Ben Rudin earned second-team honors in ’09. Sharry helped lead the team to its most successful season in school history with a record of 28-2. The Panthers won their second NESCAC Championship, captured an NCAA Sectional and made their first appearance in the Final Four.

Sharry finished the season with 15 double-doubles, leading the team with 13.7 points/game and 10.5 rebounds/contest. Sharry shot .515 from the floor this season, ranking third on the team with 45 assists and 26 steals. His 57 blocks this season were second only to Andrew Locke (113).

Sharry earned second-team All-NESCAC honors a year ago before earning a spot on the conference’s first team this season. He scored a season-high 22 points this season in a win over Wesleyan, also tying a season-high with 16 boards in that contest. After a pair of double-doubles at the NESCAC Championship weekend, Sharry was named the league’s player of the week.

Through three seasons at Middlebury, Sharry owns 942 points, 644 rebounds and 139 blocks, while shooting .532 from the floor.

Sharry also earned fourth-team All-American honors from D3 Hoops.com and was a first-team All-ECAC choice.
