MSSU's Skyler Bowlin named to two All-American teams

Posted: Updated:

JOPLIN -- Missouri Southern senior point guard Skyler Bowlin has been named to two different All-American teams as he was a third team pick of Daktronics, as well as being a first-team pick by the coaches. 

Bowlin was joined by Fort Hays' Dominique Jones on the National Association of Basketball Coaches/State Farm All-American Team. The duo were the only two players from the South Central Region named to the squad. 

Bowlin was the lone player from the South Central Region to be named to the Daktronics All-American team, picking up third-team honors. The team is voted on by sports information directors in the United States. 

Bowlin 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. 

Bowlin will be part of the Reese's NABC Division II All-Star Game this Friday at the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.
