MISENHEIMER, NC -- Senior guard Josh Calhoun has been selected as a First Team All-American by the Basketball Times as announced by the publication. Calhoun poured in 24.4 points per game which is the sixth-highest per game total in a single season in program history.
"I am so proud of Josh and all that he has accomplished at Pfeiffer," commented Head Coach Jeremy Currier. "The foundation of our basketball program is hard work and maximum effort, and no one has bought into that more than Josh. He has dedicated so much time and effort to making Pfeiffer Basketball a championship level program and now he leaves Pfeiffer winning 77 games in his decorated four-year career. He is someone I will miss coaching dearly."
