STATESBORO, Ga. – The website College Sports Madness has picked Eric Ferguson and Jelani Hewitt to its 2012 SoCon Preseason All-Conference Teams. Ferguson, a native of Statesboro, earned first team honors while Hewitt (Miramar, Fla.) was selected to the third team.
A consensus first-team All-SoCon honoree last year, Ferguson enters his junior season with 835 career points.

Last year in the SoCon Tournament, the Eagle matched his career high with 26 points against Chattanooga and 21 more versus Elon to pick up All-Tournament Team honors.

Hewitt ranked among the SoCon leaders with 1.26 steals per game and his game-winning basket at Chattanooga sparked a six-game winning streak.
