KANSAS CITY, Mo. –
After helping lead the Boston University men's basketball team to the Patriot League semifinals, senior Eric Fanning
has earned NABC Division All-District 13 honors, the National Association of Basketball Coaches announced Wednesday afternoon.
Named to the First Team, Fanning averaged a team-high 14.9 ppg, sixth-best in the Patriot League, and was second on the team in both rebounding (6.0 rpg) and assists (2.1 apg). Back in February, he became the first Terrier since Darryl Partin ('12) to earn back-to-back All-Conference First Team honors.
The 6-foot-5 guard from Trenton, N.J., opened the season with 29 points at Northeastern and would later record four double-doubles and a 32-point performance. Once conference play began, he ranked third in the PL in scoring (16.0 ppg) and ninth in rebounding (6.6 rpg) while also averaging 2.3 apg. Other highlight performances include 21 points and nine rebounds at UConn and 27 points and 13 rebounds at Loyola Maryland.
In his final contest, a thrilling 91-88 double-overtime PL semifinal loss to Lehigh, Fanning recorded his seventh-career double-double with a team-high 22 points and 11 rebounds while adding a team-high five assists and three steals. His 3-pointer with two seconds remaining helped push him past Neil Burns ('76) for No. 14 all-time at BU with 1,271 points.
