MASON CITY - For the first time since 2014, the NIACC men's basketball team has an all-American.

NIACC freshman guard Deundra Roberson earned second-team NJCAA Division II all-American honors on Monday.

Roberson is the first Trojan to receive all-American honors since David Humphries was a third-team selection in 2014. Humphries also was a first-team all-American selection in 2013.

Roberson, who was a first-team all-NJCAA Region XI selection, averaged 16.6 points per game in his freshman campaign to help lead the Trojans to a share of the ICCAC regular season title and a berth in the NJCAA Region XI title game for the first time since 1995.

Roberson, who is the 12th all-American in NIACC men's basketball history, also led the Trojans with 65 3-point goals and 64 steals.

Kirkwood's Doug Wilson was a first-team all-American and DMACC's Tray Buchanan was a third-team all-American selection.
