The Rider duo of Teddy Okereafor and Kahlil Thomas were both honored by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference on Monday, earning third team recognition.

Okereafor, a graduate student, leads the team in scoring, averaging 12.7 points per game. He also ranks fourth in the MAAC in minutes played and fifth in assists. 

Thomas has had a breakout junior campaign, averaging 11.7 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. The 6-7 forward led the league in field goal percentage (58.6 percent) and compiled 11 double-doubles in the final 20 games of the season.

Rider (12-19, 8-12) finished eighth and faces ninth-seeded Quinnipiac (9-20, 6-14) on Thursday at 5 p.m. in the first round of the MAAC Tournament.

The All-MAAC first team consisted of Monmouth's Justin Robinson, Iona's A.J. English, Fairfield's Marcus Gilbert, Manhattan's Shane Richards and Siena's Brett Bisping.

On the women's side, junior guard Robin Perkins earned second team honors.

Perkins, who starred locally at Trenton Catholic Academy, is third in the conference in scoring, averaging 15.1 points per game.

The Broncs (8-21, 5-15) finished tied for ninth with Niagara but dropped to the 10th-seeded after they lost a coin flip on Sunday. They place seventh-seeded Siena Thursday at 11:30 a.m.
