DENTON, Texas – Accolades continue to roll in for standout North Texas freshman Tony Mitchell, who was named a First-Team All-District selection by the National Association of Basketball Coaches.
Mitchell, who was named the Sun Belt Freshman of the Year and a first-team all-conference selection, earned a Sun Belt Tournament team nod last week after leading the Mean Green to the finals for a third straight year.
In league games, Mitchell led the Sun Belt in scoring, rebounding, 3-point field goal percentage and block, and finished second in field goal percentage. The Dallas native broke the school’s single-season blocks record with 70 redirects in just 23 games.
