The 2013 D3hoops.com All-Region Basketball Teams were released on Wednesday morning and Buena Vista senior Wes Nordquist (Adel, Iowa/ADM) was voted to the All-West Region Second Team.
Nordquist, a First Team All-Iowa Conference selection for the third straight time, finished his season ranked 12th in the region in scoring (17.0ppg) and second in rebounding (10.3ppg), while also sitting second in double-doubles (13). In addition, he also ranked 10th in overall field goal percentage (55.1 percent).
Wes is the first All-Region selection for Buena Vista since 2008-09 when Andre Wagner earned First Team recognition.
BVU finished 19-7 overall (11-3 IIAC) this season and captured a share of its 11th Iowa Conference title.
Players were nominated for these awards by the Sports Information Directors at the various schools, who were contacted multiple times as the season wound down to remind them to make their players eligible. There were 729 players nominated nationwide, a new high. The ballot was then made available to SIDs, who voted for a predetermined number of players in their region.
