Bowlin is a finalist along with players from each of the other seven regions and the award will be announced tomorrow evening during the first night of the 2011 NCAA Division II Elite Eight in Springfield, Mass. 

Joining Bowlin as finalists for the award are Darryl Webb of Indiana University - Pennsylvania, Jeremy Kendle of Bellarmine, Jefferson Mason of Minnesota State-Mankato, Thomas Baudinet of St. Anslem, Josh Magette of Alabama-Huntsville, George Johnson of Augusta State and Blake Poole of St. Martin's.

He was a first-team member of the NABC All-Region team, as well as the Daktronics All-Region team, while being named the Daktronics Region Player of the Year. He was a unanimous selection to be the MIAA's Player of the Year, as well as repeating as MIAA Defensive Player of the Year, sharing that title with FHSU's Dijon Smith. He was named to his fourth-straight MIAA All-Defensive Team and was a member of the 2011 MIAA All-Tournament team. 

Bowlin is the Lions' all-time leader in three pointers with 224, while his 1,664 career points rank him fourth all-time. His 568 assists and 265 steals rank 3rd & 2nd all-time and free-throw percentage of .830 ranks second all-time. He led the MIAA in steals and ranks 19th in d-2, while ranking 2nd in the MIAA in assists and 13th in d-2 in that category.
