CENTRAL — Southern Wesleyan’s Cameron Solomon was named as an honorable mention All-American by both the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) after his first season on campus.
The transfer-junior lit up the scoring book, averaging 21.56 points per game. That mark led the Southern States Athletic Conference and ranked 9th in the NAIA. Solomon scored a season-high 38 points in November against Indiana-East, one of six games where he topped the 30-point mark. He was in double figures in 31 of 32 games and reached the 20 point mark 18 times.
He shot 45 percent from the floor, 36 percent from three-point range and 72 percent from the free throw line. Solomon sliced his way to the charity stripe 262 times, over 140 more times than anyone else on the team. He also finished second on the team with 40 steals.
Southern Wesleyan finished the year 17-15 overall and 10-8 in their final year of the Southern States Athletic Conference. The Warriors fell in the SSAC quarterfinals to Belhaven and advanced to the NCCAA South Region finals before losing to Carver College.
