The honors keep coming for Humboldt State and former Montgomery high standout Zac Tiedeman.
Tiedeman will play in the NABC/NCAA Division II Men’s All-Star Game today in Springfield, Mass.
Tiedeman will play for the West against the East squad in one of the featured events during the NCAA Division II championship weekend in the city that is home to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Earlier, the senior guard was named Most Valuable Player of the California Collegiate Athletic Association after helping lead Humboldt State – 22-8 — to a share of the league’s regular season title. The Lumberjacks’ season ended with a first round loss in the West Regional of the NCAA Division II Men’s Basketball National Tournament.
The National Association of Basketball Coaches named Tiedeman to the All-West Region First Team.
On the season, Tiedeman finished second in scoring with 12.4 points a game for Humboldt State. He led the team in assists and was second in the CCAA, averaging 4.8 per contest. The sharpshooter was second in the conference in three-point shooting, making nearly half his shots, and led the league in free throw shooting at .892 percent.
