America East Awards: Darryl Partin Leads Trio Of Terriers Earning Accolades

Senior guard Darryl Partin took home the big award Friday night as a Terrier proved to be Best in Show in the America East for the second straight year. Partin took home the Kevin Roberson Player Of The Year Award and a spot on the America East First Team after leading Boston University with 19.7 points per game and finishing in second in the conference in scoring.

Sophomore point guard D.J. Irving earned a Second Team All-Conference Selection and senior center Patrick Hazel was named to the conference All Defensive Team for the second season in a row.

Partin was one of the most consistent scorers in the nation this season, eclipsing the 20 point mark in 15 of 30 games. The LaSalle transfer's second half heroics against Maine and Albany especially, helped the Terriers earn the third seed in the America East Tournament.

His backcourt mate, Irving, overcame a concussion at the midway point of the season, to earn his second postseason award at Boston University (All Rookie Team). Irving became the first Terrier to lead the conference in assists (5.48) since 1990, while averaging 11.4 points per game.

The third member of the group became the first Boston University player ever to be named to the Defensive Team twice behind his 1.6 blocks per game and 5.3 rebounds per game. After just two seasons on Commonwealth Avenue, Hazel sits in second place all-time on the Terrier blocked shots list with 115 swats.
