ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSac.com) -- Catawba’s KJ Arrington (Newport News, Va./Denbigh HS/Henry CC) and Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg HS) headlined the Catawba Indians post-season men’s basketball honorees from the South Atlantic Conference.  Arrington was named first team All-SAC, while Morrison was named the league’s Freshman of the Year.

Arrington was second in the SAC in scoring at the end of the regular season, averaging 17.7 points a game.  The junior stood seventh in rebounding (7.8), seventh in three-point shooting (42.1%) and tenth in free throw percentage (82.5%). 

Morrison, who also earned honorable mention all-league honors, received 10 of 11 possible first place votes.  He was tenth in the conference in scoring (15.5), steals (36) and three-point percentage (40.7%).  Among his six 20+ point scoring games was a 39-point effort against Newberry on Nov. 25.

Joining Morrison on the SAC All-Freshman team was Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna HS).  Taylor was just shy of averaging double figures at 9.9 points a game through the regular season.  He also added 4.8 rebounds and game and was ninth in the SAC in assists (80).  Taylor is shooting 84.8% from the free throw line which is fifth best in the SAC.

Lincoln Memorial guard Lorenza Ross was voted the 2014-15 SAC Men’s Basketball Player of the Year.  In addition, Lincoln Memorial mentor Josh Schertz was tabbed the Coach of the Year.
