CLEVELAND - Northern Illinois junior guard Xavier Silas, who ended the season ranked second in the Mid-American Conference in scoring, was named to the Honorable Mention All-MAC team on Wednesday.

In MAC play, Silas ranked second in the league in scoring (20.4 ppg), 19th in rebounding (5.6 rpg), eighth in free throw percentage (.832), fourth in three-point field goals per game (2.25) and 17th in minutes played (31.56 mpg).

"Xavier (Silas) certainly deserves to be recognized for the impact he had on our league this season," said NIU head coach Ricardo Patton. "Particularly early on in our MAC schedule, it was evident that coaches were designing their defensive game plan around him, and he did a nice job of adjusting to that."
