ENID, Okla. — Ranger trio earn GAC

basketball honors

Northwestern Oklahoma State’s Jonathan Freemyer and Darryl Glover have been named to the All-Great American Conference men’s basketball team.

Rangers coach Andrew Brown, who led NWOSU to a three-way tie for the conference crown, was named the men’s coach of the year.

Freemyer — a 6-foot-6 senior from Kingwood, Texas — averaged a team-high 16.8 points per game and was the conference’s third-leading scorer. His 7.2 rebounds per game ranked seventh in the GAC.

Freemyer finished his career as Northwestern’s third all-time leading scorer, with 1,499 career points.

Glover — a senior point guard from Inglewood, Calif. — was the league’s fourth leading scorer at 16.4 points per game. His 4.0 assists tied for third in the GAC.

The Rangers, under Brown’s guidance, won 11 of their last 15 games to finish at 15-11 overall and 13-7 in conference play.

“This is a humbling award because it comes from your peers. I appreciate the recognition,” Brown said. “It’s a result of us having a good year as a team. People are recognized individually when teams have success.”
