Former West star named All-Conference

Edgewood College's top two scorers, juniors Kent Faurote and Ben Wisniewski were named to the All-Northern Athletics Conference team as voted on by the league's coaches.

Faurote became the Eagles' first first-team selection since the 2006-07 season, while Wisniewski earned second team honors for the third consecutive year.

Wisniewski, a graduate of New Berlin West, was the 17th player in school history to reach 1,000 points, eclipsing the mark on Jan. 8 against MSOE. He had a team-high eight 20-point games this season and scored in double figures in 24 of 28 games this season.

He was sixth in the NAC in scoring, averaging 16.1 points per game this season and will enter his senior year seventh on the Eagles' all-time scoring list with 1,252 career points. His 167 career three-point baskets ranks third all-time in school history.
