Siena basketball's Pickett earns ECAC honor

The Daily Gazette, Schenectady, N.Y. — Michael Kelly The Daily Gazette, Schenectady, N.Y.

March 26-- Mar. 26--LOUDONVILLE -- Siena men's basketball sophomore Jalen Pickett was named Thursday as a first-team All-ECAC selection.

That honor is the third one awarded to Pickett this week. Pickett was named Wednesday to the Lou Henson All-America Team and Monday to the NABC District 1 first team.

Pickett, the reigning MAAC Player of the Year who led the Saints this year to their first MAAC championship since 2010, averaged 15.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and six assists per game in his second season at Siena.

Like his NABC selection, Pickett's inclusion on the All-ECAC first team was for the second consecutive year. Pickett is the first Siena player to ever earn multiple All-ECAC honors.
