Lansman slighted by coaches for MIAA Player of the Year

Trey Lansman led the MIAA in scoring, was second in rebounds per game, fourth in average blocks, second in minutes per game and 15th in assists.

He led Justin Pitts in four of the five categories, and somehow the Northwest Missouri State guard was named the MIAA player of the year over Lansman. The UNK senior was even better in conference only games, three points per, to be exact, and eighth in assists (as a big man!), yet still got surpassed by Pitts.

Lansman was also a four–time MIAA Player of the Week, twice as many as the senior from NWMSU.

However, the coaches have spoken. The Bearcat senior guard did miss some time this season due to injury and was the reigning National Player of the Year for the conference's regular season champions.

This is Lansman's second–straight first–team selection.

Fellow seniors Ty Danielson and Lane Rohrich were both named honorable mention.
