KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Georgia Southern's Eric Ferguson (Statesboro, Ga.) was recently honored by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) as a member of the All-District 22 Second Team.

With a pair of 20+ point performances in the SoCon Tournament, Ferguson earned All-SoCon Tournament honors. He was the only player in the Tournament to score over 20 points in multiple contests, scoring 26 in the opener against Chattanooga and 21 versus Elon.
The blog RushtheCourt.net named Ferguson their SoCon Player of the Year for his part in the Eagles' turnaround this season. Georgia Southern added 11 league wins to their 2010-11 total to finish the year at 12-6 in SoCon play and 15-15 overall.
