D2CCA Southeast Region Release

BRISTOL, Tenn. – Jordan Floyd of the King University men's basketball team has been selected Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) Southeast Region Player of the year and first team all-region.

This marks the second time in his career Floyd has garnered first team honors from the D2CCA with the other coming in 2017-18. He also becomes the first Tornado to earn region player of the year in program history. Floyd can add these awards to his Conference Carolinas Player of the year and first team all-conference honors.

The Stone Mountain, Ga., native led all of NCAA Division II in scoring at 31.9 points per game. He was the only player in NCAA Division I and II that averaged more than 30.0 points per game. He was second in all three NCAA divisions behind an NCAA Division III scorer.

In Division II, Floyd is one of seven players that shot better than 50.0 percent from the floor, 40.0 percent from three-point range and 80.0 percent from the free throw line, shooting 50.3 percent from the floor, 42.6 percent from long range and 81.3 percent from the charity stripe. The senior also averaged 2.7 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game while leading Conference Carolinas in steals and blocks.

This season, Floyd broke school records for points in a game, season and career. He broke the previous record of 42 points in a game, scoring 43 four times before pouring in 47 in a win over Erskine College. He scored 956 points this season, breaking the previous record of 684 that was held by Mark Dockery. In the Conference Carolinas quarterfinal, Floyd became the School's all-time leading scorer, again breaking Dockery's record of 1,824 career points. Floyd ended his career with 1,900 points in three seasons

In 30 games for the Tornado this season, Floyd scored more than 30 points 19 times and hit the 40-point plateau eight times. Floyd was selected Conference Carolinas Player of the Week seven times while earning U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) NCAA Division II National Player of the Week twice.

Floyd will now be nominated for All-America honors as well as for the Ron Lenz Player of the Year award which is scheduled to be announced on March 25.
