GREENVILLE, SC- The NCCAA has just announced its national awards for the 2021-22 season, and Alice Lloyd College Eagle senior Noah Young was named NCCAA Division I Men’s Third Team All-American. The award is very difficult to win as only five players are selected for the top-three squads. As a testament to his outstanding play, the Highland (KY) native finished 11th in the overall voting.

The veteran guard was steady all year as his performance helped propel the Eagles to a record-breaking season. Young helped ALC finish with a 27-7 record, which ties the school record for wins, and included a school-record 19-game win streak. It also marks the first time since 1996 that the club has won at least 20 games in a season. ALC was also the Mideast Region Champions for the third consecutive year, and their performance earned the club the top-seed in the NCCAA National Tournament.

Individually, Young finished the year by leading the team in both scoring (14 ppg) and assists (6.4apg), while connecting on 48 % from the floor, 34% from long distance, and 73.5% from the charity line. He finished 1st in the NCCAA in both assists (6.4) and assist/turnover ratio (4 to 1). He saved his best for last as he led the squad in the national tournament by averaging 19 points and 6 assists per game, over the three games played.

Additionally, Young was named 3rd Team All American by the NCCAA last year and is a 3-time All-Mideast Region selection. The veteran guard was also named First Team All-River States Conference for the second consecutive season and was voted the league’s top point guard both years as well. He scored over 1,600 points and registered over 500 assists as an Eagle. Young will graduate in May.
