Minnesota Crookston men’s basketball player Harrison Cleary (Sr., G) was named to the Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) All-America Third Team, as voted on by Division II members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) and announced on Wed., March 25.

The Oak Creek, Wisc. product earned All-American honors for the second time in his career, having previously been named Honorable Mention as a sophomore.

As a senior, Cleary averaged 26.6 points, 4.2 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game, shooting 42.5 percent from the field, 38.9 percent from 3-point range and 90.8 percent from the line. In January, he became the NSIC's all-time leading scorer. He ended his career with the Golden Eagles as the school record-holder in points, assists, 3-pointers, field goals, free throws, free throw percentage, games played and games started.

Cleary previously was named to the All-NSIC First-Team, a D2CCA All-Central Region First Team honoree and a NABC All-Central District Second Teamer.

With his D2CCA selection, Cleary also became one of just four players to earn All-America honors both on and off the court, after being named a CoSIDA Academic All-American last week.

Cleary was one of two NSIC players to earn D2CCA All-America honors, along with Brandon Myer of University of Minnesota Duluth. He was joined on the third team by Myer, Brian Halums of Arkansas-Fort Smith, Shadeed Shabazz of Alaska Fairbanks and Selom Mawugbe of Azusa Pacific.

Jordan Floyd of King University was named the D2CCA Player of the Year.
