Lopez First Team All-MAAC; Okereafor Second Team

Rider senior center Matt Lopez was named First Team All-MAAC on Monday by the league's coaches, while junior guard Teddy Okereafor earned Second Team.

Lopez, in his only year of eligibility, led the Broncs in points (12.3) and rebounding (7.7) before suffering a season-ending knee injury on Feb. 19 against Quinnipiac.

Other first team selections were: Iona's David Laury and A.J. English, Manhattan's Emmy Andujar, Monmouth's Justin Robinson and Quinnipiac's Zaid Hearst.

Okereafor, also in his first season at Rider after transferring from VCU, has started all 31 games, averaging 11.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4 assists per contest.

The Broncs finished the regular season 21-10, including a 15-5 mark in the league to earn the No. 2 seed.

Rider will play either seventh-seeded St. Peter's (14-17, 8-12) or 10th-seeded Fairfield (7-23, 5-15) in the quarterfinals on Saturday at 5:30 p.m.
