HBU Huskies Ian DuBose Earns First Team Preseason All-SLC Nod
POSTED: October 9, 2019 -- 11:58 a.m. CT
After a stellar sophomore campaign in which he finished fifth in the Southland Conference in scoring and ranked in the top 10 in a number of other categories, Houston Baptist University Huskies junior Ian DuBose has been selected first team Preseason All-Southland Conference for the upcoming 2019-20 season.
DuBose, a second team All-SLC selection last season, led the Huskies in scoring (17 points per game) and rebounding (5.9 rebounds per game) and was second on the team in both assists (3.4 assists per game) and steals (1.6 steals per game). In conference play, he averaged 16.9 points per game, 6.3 rebounds per game, 3.4 assists per game, 1.6 steals per game and shot 45 percent from three while connecting on 48.6 percent from the floor. Each of those stats ranked in the top 10 in the league.
