Josh Reagan and Jermaine Warmack of the Rio Grande RedStorm were recognized for their accomplishments on the court as the Mid-South Conference announced its award winners for the 2013-14 season on Wednesday March 5.
Reagan, a junior, was one of 11 players named to the All-Conference First Team. Despite sitting out half the season due to transfer regulations, Reagan emerged as Rio Grande’s leading scorer with an average of 20.5 points a game. Reagan also shot 57.1 percent from the field and 40 percent from 3-point range.
As a two-time MSC Player of the Week, Reagan helped the RedStorm earn a top 25 national ranking for the first time since it was ranked No. 17 back on Jan. 19, 2009, when they were a member of the America Mideast Conference.
Along with Player of the Week and First-Team honors, Reagan also dropped a career-high 46 points against Bluefield College back on Jan. 25.
Senior Warmack complimented Reagan by earning All-Conference Second Team honors. Warmack became the 25th member in school history to reach 1,000 points as a member of the RedStorm.
As the team’s only senior starter, Warmack led the RedStorm in assists (4.8) and steals (2.2) per game. He is also the school’s all-time steals leader while ranking 10th in the NAIA in free throw shooting at 86 percent.
Rio Grande junior guards Evan Legg and Travis Elliott were named to the Academic All-Mid-South Conference Team to go along with Warmack and Reagan’s on-court awards.
After tearing through the end of December to Jan. 18 on a six-game win streak, Rio Grande fell hard towards the end of the season.
The RedStorm dropped their final seven games of the season, including a first round 91-74 tournament loss to St. Catharine College to end Rio Grande’s 2013-14 season.
The RedStorm will lose Warmack and senior Ricky Tisdale to graduation.
