MACON, Ga. – On the heels of the Bears' CollegeInsider.com Tournament championship, Mercer's Langston Hall has claimed the Crons Achiever Award for his accomplishments in the month of March.
March's vote was the closest of the three awards thus far, as Hall claimed 51 percent of the fanvote on the Atlantic Sun Insider blog to win the honor. The second-place nominee finished with 29 percent of the vote.
During March, Hall led Mercer men's basketball to a 5-1 record, including five straight wins in the CIT postseason tournament. He was named MVP of the CollegeInsider.com Tournament, averaging 11.2 points, 5.6 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game. In the CIT Championship game Hall scored 16 points, grabbed six rebounds and dished four assists at Utah State. The victory was the first postseason title in Mercer and A-Sun history.
