Frostburg State seniors Pierre Bowery (Kensington, Md./Einstein)
and A.J. Ernst (Minster, Ohio/Minster)
have been named to the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Men's Basketball All-Conference Team, the league announced late Saturday.
Bowery, a 6-5 forward, became the first Bobcat to earn first-team All-AMCC honors three straight seasons. He led FSU in both scoring (19.8) and rebounding (7.4) for the second consecutive year, and his 68 blocks shattered his own single-season school record of 57 he set in 2000-01.
Bowery, who finishes his career ranked No. 2 on the school's all-time scoring list with 1,809 points, led FSU in scoring 16 times and in rebounding 14 more occasions this season.
He posted nine 20-point games, including three with a career-high 35, and also had seven double-doubles.
Bowery tied his own single-game school record of seven blocks twice this year, and he ranks as FSU's all-time leading shot blocker with 192.
Ernst earned All-AMCC honorable mention honors after finishing second on the team in scoring at 11.4 points per game.
The 5-11 guard led FSU with 44 made three-pointers and 42 steals, and he added shot 74.1 percent (43-of-58) from the free-throw line.
Ernst scored in double-digits 13 times, including a career-high 30-point effort in FSU's 105-99 double-overtime loss to Bethany (W.Va.) February 5.
Frostburg State finished the season with a 10-16 overall record, including a 5-7 mark in the AMCC.
La Roche freshman Dom Joseph was named the AMCC Newcomer of the Year, while La Roche's Scott Lang and Penn State Behrend's Dave Niland were voted Co-Coaches of the Year.
No. 3 Pitt-Bradford (22-6) won the AMCC Tournament title for the second year in a row with a narrow 62-59 defeat of No. 1 Penn State Behrend (19-8) Saturday.
