The Southern Conference released their 2012 All-Conference Men’s Basketball Team today, and the roster was peppered with players from local schools. Trent Wiedeman and Antwaine Wiggins represented the College of Charleston on the team, as did Kevin Giltner and Brad Loesing of Wofford. The Citadel also had one representative on the team in Mike Groselle.
Loesing, the senior guard, also was named as the SoCon Defensive Player of the Year. However, he was not the only Wofford guard to garner individual recognition, as Karl Cochran was awarded the SoCon Freshman of the Year. Cochran was joined by Adjehi Baru of the College of Charleston on the SoCon All-Freshman Team.
Davidson picked up the rest of the individual honors, as coach Bob McKillop was named as Coach of the Year and sophomore forward De’Mon Brooks was recognized as the SoCon’s Player of the Year.
