Enquirer news services

Three days after leading his team to the Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament title, Northern Kentucky men's basketball coach Ken Shields was named the conference's coach of the year Tuesday.

Shields, who shared the honor with Kentucky Wesleyan coach Ray Harper, guided the Norse to a 25-5 record and the tournament championship despite a No. 3 seed.

Joining his coach on the GLVC honors list was senior guard Brenden Stowers. The Simon Kenton grad and GLVC Tournament MVP was voted to the all-conference first team by the league coaches. He averages 16 points a game and leads the Norse in assists with 129.

NKU senior forward Quentin Smith, a Mount Healthy grad who averages 13.2 points and a team-leading 7.8 rebounds per game, was named to the GLVC second team.

Elder grad Mike Kelsey, an NKU sophomore, was an honorable-mention selection. The Norse open play in the NCAA Division II Tournament at noon Friday in Houghton, Mich., against Findlay.

MIAMI: Guard Josh Hausfeld (Roger Bacon) was named to the five-member All-Mid-American Conference Freshman Team by the coaches. Hausfeld had 18 starts in 27 appearances and was second on the team in assists (44) and steals (18) and fourth in scoring (7.1 ppg).
