DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Bethune-Cookman men’s basketball forward Adrien Coleman garnered another post-season award Thursday when named him to its HBCU Division I All-American team.

The junior from Atlanta led the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) in scoring (17.8 ppg) and was fourth in rebounding (7.1 per game). He was the only player in the MEAC ranked in the top 10 in scoring, rebounding, field goal percentage (8th at .539) and assists (10th). Coleman also became Bethune-Cookman’s 26th 1,000-point career scorer in just his second season with the Wildcats.

Last week, Coleman was named to the National Association of Basketball Coach’s District 15 First Team. In addition, he was named MEAC Player Of The Year by two websites – and, which also listed him as a fourth-team Mid-Major All American. Coleman also became the first B-CU player to be named to consecutive All-MEAC Tournament Teams last month after leading the Wildcats to the conference semifinals.

He becomes B-CU’s second HBCU All-American in the past three years. C.J. Reed was named National Player of the Year in 2011.

B-CU finished 14-20 during the 2012-2013 campaign. The Wildcats upset defending MEAC Tournament champion Norfolk State, who went undefeated during the regular season, in the quarterfinals before falling to Morgan State in the semifinals.
