MASON CITY – NIACC’s McKelary Robertson earned third-team NJCAA Division II men’s basketball honors on Wednesday.
Robertson, a 6-foot-0 guard from Woodbury, Minn., became the school’s 13th all-American in men’s basketball and first since Deundra Roberson earned second-team all-American honors in the 2018-10 season.
“This is a very well-deserved honor,” NIACC men’s basketball coach Mark Mohl said. “He has worked very hard and just had a terrific year for us.
“He is a tremendous person, student and basketball player.”
Robertson averaged 18.7 points per game (429 points) to lead the Trojans in scoring. Robertson averaged 5.3 points per game as a freshman.
Robertson also led the Trojans with 60 3-point goals, 71 assists and 23 steals. The 60 3-point goals is tied for 21st on NIACC’s all-time single-season list.
Robertson was one of four ICCAC players to earn all-American honors. DMACC’s Willie Guy and Iowa Lakes’ Xzavier Jones were first-team selections and Kirkwood’s Corvon Seales was a third-team selection.
“We play in a tremendous league and for him (Robertson) to put up the numbers he did against the competition we played was outstanding.”
