UB's CJ Massinburg, Nick Perkins make first-team all-MAC

Juniors CJ Massinburg and Nick Perkins both were named to the first-team all-Mid-American Conference team, the league announced Monday.

UB enters the MAC Tournament Thursday in Cleveland as the No. 1 seed with a record of 23-8 overall and 15-3 in conference. The selections were made by vote of the MAC's 12 head coaches.

The Bulls put junior wing Jeremy Harris on the all-MAC second team and senior point guard Wes Clark on the third team. Sophomore point guard Davonta Jordan made the all-defensive team.

The MAC will announce its player of the year and coach of the year on Wednesday; the conference will announce its awards for top freshman, defensive player and sixth man on Tuesday.

Massinburg, a 6-3 guard, ranks fourth overall in the MAC in scoring at 17.4 points a game and sixth in rebounding at 7.5 a game. Perkins, a 6-8 forward, has averages in conference games that rank fourth for scoring (18.2) and 10th for rebounding (6.6).

Harris averages 15 ppg and leads the league in three-point percentage at .463. Clark averages 14.8 points and 5.2 assists in league play, which ranks second.
