Frostburg State placed three players on both the All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Men's and Women's Basketball Teams which were announced Saturday following the league's tournament championship games.
On the men's side, senior guard Ryan Grabill (Boonsboro, Md./Williamsport) and sophomore center Dan Ryley (Frederick, Md./St. John's Prospect Hall) were voted to the second team, while senior forward Myro Small (Berlin, Md./Stephen Decatur) earned honorable mention honors.
The trio helped lead FSU to a 15-13 overall record, including a 6-6 mark in the AMCC. The Bobcats made a strong run as the No. 3 seed in the AMCC Tournament, knocking off No. 2 Pitt-Greensburg 57-51 in the semifinals before falling to No. 4 La Roche 44-42 in overtime in the title contest.
