ELMHURST, Ill. - North Dakota State forward Michael Tveidt was named to the All-Summit League men's basketball second team Thursday, March 3, by a vote of the league's head coaches, sports information directors and media.
Tveidt, a 6-foot-7 senior from Pierre, S.D., ranked ninth in the league-only stats in scoring with 15.9 points per game. He is NDSU's overall leader in scoring and is second in field-goal shooting (.494), 3-point shooting (.464) and free-throw shooting (.789).

Oakland took four of the five major individual awards, including the Player of the Year award to senior center Keith Benson, who became the fifth player in league history to win it in back-to-back years. Benson averaged 18.7 points and 10.1 rebounds in league play and was also named Defensive Player of the Year with a league-best 4.4 blocked shots per game.
Oakland's Larry Wright was named Sixth Man of the Year and Greg Kampe was named Coach of the Year after leading the Golden Grizzlies to their second straight league championship with a 17-1 record. Oral Roberts freshman Steven Roundtree was named Newcomer of the Year.
