CBU was one of just two programs to have two players named to the seven-member first team, joining conference champion Dixie State. Its three selections to the first and second team are matched only by BYU-Hawaii, which also had Player of the Year in Jet Chang.
Von Wright led the Lancers and was fifth in the conference in scoring, averaging 14.8 points per contest. He was also third in the PacWest in 3-point percentage, shooting 44.1 percent (60-for-136). Last night, Von Wright etched his name in the CBU record books becoming the 28th player in program history to join the 1,000-point club with a free throw with 23.2 seconds left. He needed 28 points coming into last night's game, and that free throw gave him 28 points, his fifth 20-point game of the season.
Von Wright also made 150 career 3-pointers, which places him fifth on the Lancers' all-time list. He also averaged 5.2 rebounds and scored a career-high 32 points against BYU-Hawaii on Feb. 25.
Evans, meanwhile, earns his second career postseason honor after earning All-GSAC recognition last year. He was seventh in the PacWest in scoring (14.1 avg.), third in rebounds (7.5 avg.), sixth in field goal percentage (54.1 percent) and fifth in blocked shots (0.8 avg.) and was one of just two players in the PacWest to rank in the top 10 in scoring and rebounding and the only one to rank in the top 10 in scoring, rebounding and field goal percentage.
Just like Von Wright, Evans also joined the Lancers' 1,000-point club last night, scoring 14 points after needing just 10 coming into the game. He also grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds for his fifth double-double of the season.
Patterson enjoyed a breakout sophomore campaign with a career-high 11.1 points and 3.4 rebounds in 25 games. He started each of the final 13 games and scored in double figures in 10 of the final 14 games, including a career-high 22 points in a win at Chaminade.
At 6-2, Patterson was second in the PacWest, shooting 57.5 percent from the floor and was also second in the PacWest in steals, averaging 1.9 steals per game and trailing only Xander McNally of Dominican, who led the entire nation in steals with 4.0 per game.
The Lancers finished the season 16-10 overall and were tied for fourth in the PacWest at 10-8, their first season in the NCAA Division II conference.
