There’s one more chance for York College men’s basketball fans to cheer on one of the Spartans’ three standout seniors this season.
Dalton Myers has been voted into the 2018 NABC Reese's Division III Senior All-Star game. Fan voting closed Thursday on D3hoops.com.
The game is scheduled for March 17 at the Salem Civic Center in Salem, Virginia. It will also be live streamed on D3hoops.com.
Myers received a record 60,577 votes, eclipsing the previous record of 28,124 votes received by Rhodes' Andrew Galow in 2013. This is the eighth year that fans have been able to select two players for the senior all-star game.
Myers was grateful for the support from the Spartan community.
"It's an honor to represent York College one more time on the court," Myers said in a news release. "I was overwhelmed by the support I received in the last 48 hours. It's pretty awesome to be a part of such a great community. Thank you to all the people who took the time to vote for me. I really appreciate that support and I am looking forward to playing in the game."
Myers led the Spartans to the 2018 Capital Athletic Conference championship and the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament. York won 24 games, the third highest total in school history, and was nationally ranked for a majority of the season.
The forward earned first-team All-CAC accolades for the second time in his career. He is also one of ten finalists for the 2018 Jostens Trophy. That winner will be announced on Friday afternoon.
Penn State Altoona's Ishimeal Nance will also be going to the game as he was second with 58,907 votes. Myers and Nance will join a roster of 18 other players, split into two ten-player teams.
