Youngstown State junior Cameron Morse has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 12 First-Team, the association announced today (March 22).

Morse is the second Youngstown State player in the last four years to earn NABC All-District 12 First-Team honors. The last player to garner all-district laurels was Kendrick Perry in 2013-14.

Morse, a 2017 All-Horizon League First-Team selection, led the Horizon League in scoring with 23.2 points per game in conference play, and ranked second in league in overall scoring with 22.9 points per game.

The native of Flint, Mich., set the Youngstown State Division I single-season scoring record with 711 points in 2016-17, and is just the third player in school history to score at least 700 points in a season. His 711 points rank second on the all-time single-season chart. Morse also tied the school mark with four career games with 40-or-more points.

He was the only player in the Horizon League to score at least 700 points this season and just one of three players nationally to score 40-or-more on multiple occasions.

Morse scored in double figures in 30 of 31 games and had three games of at least 40 points, six games of 30-or-more and 19 games with at least 20 points.

His 260 field-goals made ranked fourth on the single-season chart while his 76 3-pointers made are the sixth most in school history.

Morse, whose 22.9 points per game rank ninth on the YSU single-season chart, became the 37th player in school history to reach 1,000 career points and ranks 15th all-time with 1,421 career points.
