Gordon Men's Basketball Honored By TCCC

Gordon College student-athletes Greg Walker (Uxbridge, Mass.) and David Dempsey (Wallingford, Ct.) have been recognized by The Commonwealth Coast Conference as members of the 2011 All-Conference Team. The honors were the first for Walker and Dempsey, who earned Second Team and Third Team, respectively.

Walker, a senior-captain, was instrumental in leading the Scots’ charge this year, averaging 15.9 points per game during the regular season (with a team-leading .503 shooting percentage) en route to joining Gordon’s 1,000-point club in a 17-point effort versus Endicott College earlier this season. Additionally, Walker worked the boards to grab 7.4 rebounds per game for the Scots.

Dempsey, a sophomore, also established himself as a team statistical leader for the Scots by grabbing 7.7 rebounds per game while adding an impressive 14.8 points per game, second only to Walker. He also co-led the Scots in steals (34), led in blocks (22), and finished second in assists (64) during the regular season. His contributions were critical in carrying Gordon to a late season surge in which the Scots posted 5-2 month of February.

In addition to individual accolades, Gordon was also given the TCCC Team Sportsmanship Award, an honor they shared with Wentworth Institute of Technology.
