NABC Names Daum Third Team All-American

KANSAS CITY - South Dakota State's Mike Daum was announced Tuesday as a Third Team All-American by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Selected and voted on by member coaches of the NABC in Division I, Daum was named to the organization's All-District Team a week ago alongside teammate David Jenkins, and picks up All-American honors from the group for the first time in his career.

Daum averaged 25.3 points and 11.7 rebounds per game for the season, finishing as the only player with a 25-10 double-double average in the NCAA. The three-time Summit League Player of the Year concluded his career as the school's all-time leader in points, rebounds, field goals, 3-pointers and free throws. He is seventh all-time in NCAA history with 3,067 career points.

Daum earned Third Team All-American honors from the USBWA earlier this month, and the last two years as been an honorable mention All-American for the Associated Press.

Located in Kansas City, the NABC was founded in 1927 by Phog Allen, the legendary basketball coach at the University of Kansas. Allen, a student of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, organized coaches into this collective group to serve as Guardians of the Game. The NABC currently has nearly 5,000 members consisting primarily of university and college men's basketball coaches.

All members of the NABC are expected to uphold the core values of being a Guardian of the Game by bringing attention to the positive aspects of the sport of basketball and the role coaches play in the academic and athletic lives of today's student-athletes. The four core values of being a Guardian of the Game are advocacy, leadership, service and education. Additional information about the NABC, its programs and membership, can be found at www.nabc.com.

South Dakota State concluded its 2018-19 campaign the National Invitation Tournament, reaching the postseason for the eighth-straight year at the Division I level.
