ASU Mid-South guard Jalen Lynn has been named to the NJCAA Division II All-American Basketball Team as announced by the NJCAA.
The NJCAA All-American Team is composed of 30 players listed on three teams of 10 players each, with Lynn listed as a Third Team selection after averaging 20.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.0 steals per game. The 6'0" guard from Collierville, Tennessee, also shot 47.4% from the field, 37.1% from the three-point line and 83.4% from the free throw line while posting high games of 41 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists.
Lynn earned First Team All-Region honors for the second consecutive season and was only one of two players from Region 2 to be named an All-American as SAU Tech's Sheldon Smith was named to the Second Team after taking Region 2 MVP honors. Both players are moving on to NCAA Division I opportunities as Lynn committed to the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) and Smith is headed to Oral Roberts University (OK).
The Greyhounds finished the season ranked #17 in the nation with a 25-8 overall record and won their fourth consecutive Region 2 Championship before dropping a 74-72 decision to #6 ranked North Central Missouri in the District Championship Game for the second straight season.
Lynn is the second Greyhound to be named All-American in school history, following Dee Montgomery who was a Second Team pick for the 2017-18 season after the 5'11" guard averaged 15.2 points, 4.0 assists, 2.1 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game and leading the Greyhounds to the NJCAA National Tournament where they finished fifth in the nation.
