1995-96 All-Conference Awards

Whitman's inside-outside tandem, Evan Jones and Dan Rough, have earned honorable mention recognition in voting for the 1995-96 all-Northwest Conference of Independent Colleges (NCIC) teams. Both Rough and Jones earned NCIC Player of the Week honors during the season.

Jones, a 6-foot-6 junior, was among the NCIC leaders in scoring, rebounding, field goal percentage and blocked shots. He led the conference in total rebounds with 192 and was second in rebounding average at 8.0 boards per game, just three-tenths of a percentage point behind a player who played fewer games during the season.

Jones, who played two seasons at Moberly Junior College in Missouri, also topped the NCIC in total blocked shots with 53, but again finished second in blocks per game at 2.21 (the leader averaged 2.29 blocks in three fewer games).

In the scoring department, Jones, who graduated from Christchurch High School in Virginia, finished seventh in the NCIC, averaging 16.8 points per game. He also was seventh in field goal percentage, hitting 52.6 percent of his shots from the floor.

Dan Rough, a 6-foot-1 sophomore, led the NCIC in three categories: free throw percentage (93.3 percent), total points (440) and total 3-point goals (90). Rough, a graduate of Port Townsend (Wash.) High School, averaged 18.3 points per game, which ranked him in third place in the NCIC, a half point behind the leader. He was sixth in 3-point percentage (43.1 percent).

Rough, who led the nation (NAIA Div. II) in 3-point accuracy a year ago as a freshman, led the country in free throw percentage for several weeks this season. He finished with 56 free throws in 60 attempts. His only misses from the charity stripe this season came during back-to-back non-conference games against Eastern Oregon State College in mid-December. He was a perfect 26 of 26 during the conference season.

Despite playing more than 30 minutes a night, Rough doesn't qualify for a possible national title in free throw percentage. To qualify for national honors in that category, a player must make 2.5 free throws per game. Since he played in 24 games, Rough needed 60 free throws to qualify. He went to the line just one time in his last three games and finished with a total of 56.

Whitman point guard Andrew Schillinger led the NCIC in total assists (139) and assists per game (5.8). Chris Mosley was No. 8 in the conference in both field goal percentage (51.4 percent) and assists (3.3 per game). Alan Van Divort was 11th in rebounding (6.1 per game).

With no seniors on its 1995-96 roster, Whitman will return plenty of experience next season. Tyler Satterthwaite, who played in five games at the start of the 1995-96 season, was granted medical redshirt status for this season. That means Satterthwaite, who came to Whitman last fall after playing two years at Columbia Basin College in Pasco, Wash., has two years of athletic eligibility remaining. Satterthwaite averaged 7.8 points and 5.0 rebounds off the bench early in the season before being sidelined by a foot injury.

Whitworth College ran its winning streak to nine games, downing Linfield and Lewis & Clark College in the NCIC playoffs, to advance to the NAIA Div. II national tournament.
