Wang was named to the first team, while Riley secured a place on the second team. It is the first career all-conference honor for either player. It marks the first time that the Blazers have placed two players on the all-conference team since the 2006-07 season.
Wang, a sophomore, ranks among the MAC Commonwealth leaders in seven statistical categories. The guard is fifth in the conference in scoring (17.0), tenth in 3-point field goal percentage (36.4), sixth in 3-point field goals per game (2.2), fifth in free throw percentage (81.1), fifth in made free throws (103), second in assist/turnover ratio (3.0) and second in steals (2.0). He scored at least 20 points on 10 occasions, including a 36-point outburst in a win over Lebanon Valley. He was twice named the conference player of the week.
Riley, junior, leads the MAC Commonwealth at 2.7 made 3-point field goals per game. The guard is sixth in the league in 3-point field goal percentage (38.7) but has made at least 20 more 3-pointers than any player ahead of him. Riley is third in free throw percentage (84.3) and seventh in steals (1.5). He leads Hood with 5.3 rebounds per game. He topped 20 points in a game five times, including back-to-back 22-point outings on his way to a conference player of the week nod during the final week of the regular season.
The duo helped lead the Blazers to a 17-9 record, including 11-5 in the MAC Commonwealth. Hood finished second in the conference and hosted a semifinal contest for the first time in 11 years.
