After a benchmark senior season in which he led the Boston University men’s basketball team in scoring and captured the America East Conference Player of the Year honors, senior guard Darryl Partin can now add another honor to the list: All-American.
With the Terriers’ season wrapped up weeks ago, Partin was named as an Associated Press All-America honorable mention Monday.
Partin, a native of Seattle, became the sixth BU player to earn All-America honors. The last player to earn such a title was John Holland, who was included as an honorable mention player in 2011.
For a Terrier team looking to fill the immense offensive load left by Holland, the 2011 America East Player of the Year, Partin delivered by averaging 19.6 points per game, a figure that placed him among the top 25 players in Division I. Additionally, Partin tallied 20 or more points in 15 games this season.
He earned America East Player of the Week honors twice and was named to the conference’s first team for the second consecutive season.
A transfer from La Salle University, Partin surpassed the 1,000-point plateau in his BU career this year despite having just been in his second season with the team.
