Bowery, Brown Earn First-Team All-AMCC Honors
02/27/2002

ERIE, PA — Senior Sean Brown (Baltimore, Md./North County) and junior Pierre Bowery (Kensington, Md./Albert Einstein) were both named to the All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Men's Basketball first team in an announcement made by the league on Monday.

Brown, an All-AMCC honorable mention selection last season, finished second on the Bobcats in both scoring and rebounding with 15.6 points and 4.5 caroms per game.

He led FSU and ranked among the national leaders in both assists (5.6) and steals (2.5), and he was third on the team with 49 made three-pointers.

Brown led FSU in scoring five times, rebounding three times, assists 19 times and steals 17 times. He scored 20 or more points in 10 times, including a career-high 25 points against Washington & Jefferson, and he added a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds versus Pitt-Greensburg. He was named the AMCC Player of the Week once during the season.

Bowery, a repeat first-team All-AMCC selection, led the Bobcats in scoring for the second straight year, averaging a career-high 21.1 points per game.

He paced the team with 6.8 rebounds per game, shot a squad-best 50.6 percent (214-of-423) from the field and hit a single-season school-record 150 free throws, breaking Eddie Rutledge's former mark of 142 set in 1985-86.

Bowery, who moved into eighth place on the school's all-time scoring chart with 1,295 points, was FSU's leading scorer in 22 games, and he also topped the squad in rebounding 15 times.

The three-time AMCC Player of the Week scored 20 or more points on 20 occasions, including a career-high 34 points against La Roche, and he posted five double-doubles. He also reached double-digit scoring figures in 26 of FSU's 28 games.

Additionally, Bowery led FSU with 50 blocks, increasing his school career record to 124.

"Sean and Pierre are both great ambassadors for our University, the AMCC and NCAA basketball," said Bobcat head coach Webb Hatch. "They are well-mannered and coachable young men who work hard on the court and in the classroom. Both of them are very deserving of being named to the All-AMCC first team."

Pitt-Bradford junior center Matt Beacom, Penn State Behrend sophomore center James Curren and Lake Erie junior guard Brandon Henderson were also named to the first team. Beacom took home Most Valuable Player honors, Pitt-Greensburg's Ryan Moye won the Newcomer of the Year award and Pitt-Greensburg's Karl Radday was named the Coach of the Year.

The Bobcats finished 16-12 overall and 9-3 in the AMCC and advanced to the AMCC Tournament championship game for the second straight season. FSU is 36-22 over the last two years, and the 36 wins is the second-highest two-year total in school history.
