All-region team includes Anderson
Complete All-West Region Team

Zach Anderson helped provide at least one postseason highlight for the Linfield men’s basketball team by being named to the 2011-12 NCAA Division III Men’s All-West Region Team, as announced Monday by D3hoops.com.

A second team selection, Anderson led the Northwest Conference in scoring at 21.6 points per game, the 12th-highest single-season average in Linfield history. The effort more than doubled his scoring output from the previous season (9.8).

He registered double-digit scoring efforts in all but one game, including a career-high 33 in a nonconference game against Concordia. The veteran forward earned all-league honors for the first time in his career, landing on the first team.

Anderson becomes the second player in as many years to be named to the all-region team, joining 2011 graduate K.C. Wiser.

To become eligible for all-region recognition, players were nominated by the Sports Information Directors at their respective schools. A national ballot of 683 total players, a new high, was then made available to SIDs, who voted for a predetermined number of players in their region.
