Three Bobcat basketball players received honors on Monday when the Mid-American Conference announced their regular season all-MAC teams.

Junior Tony Campbell, sophomore Jaaron Simmons and freshman Jordan Dartis were named to the first, second and all-freshman teams, respectively.


Campbell was named first team all-MAC after averaging a double-double with nearly 18 points and 10 rebounds per contest. The forward improved in every facet of the game this season. He saw his averages jump from last season in virtually every major statistic from assists to blocks.


Simmons, playing in his first season of MAC competition, ended the regular season third in the country and first in the MAC with 231 total assists. The sophomore poured in 15 points a game as well, including two games with more than 30 points.


Dartis was one of the deadliest shooters in the MAC this season, making over 47 percent of his threes on the season. Dartis flashed what could be when the freshman exploded for seven threes against Buffalo, totaling 23 points.


Ohio, the two-seed in the MAC tournament, will begin postseason play on Thursday. The Bobcats will take on the winner of Northern Illinois and Western Michigan.
