McGusty Named an NABC First Team All-District 2 Selection
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Kameron McGusty of the University of Miami men’s basketball team garnered National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) First Team All-District 2 plaudits, as announced Tuesday morning.
The recognition is voted on by coaches within the district. The Hurricanes’ district includes the 15 ACC schools and the first-team list matched the official All-ACC balloting. McGusty is joined on the top team by North Carolina’s Armando Bacot, Duke’s Paolo Banchero, Syracuse’s Buddy Boeheim and Wake Forest’s Alondes Williams.
The sixth-year redshirt senior guard is the first Hurricane to earn NABC All-District accolades since Sheldon McClellan tallied second-team distinction in 2015-16. He is the first Miami player to register a first-team designation since Kenny Kadji and Shane Larkin did so in 2012-13.
A 6-foot-5-inch, 190-pounder, McGusty is averaging 17.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.7 steals per game, while shooting 48.0 percent from the floor, 37.3 percent beyond the arc and 81.4 percent at the line. He is one of just two Power Five players averaging 17-plus points per game on at least a 45/35/80 shooting clip, alongside Kansas State’s Nijel Pack.
Over the last week-plus, McGusty has also earned First Team All-ACC, Associated Press First Team All-ACC and ACC All-Tournament First Team distinctions.
The entire list of NABC All-District honorees, across all 24 districts, can be found HERE.
McGusty and No. 10-seeded Miami (23-10, 14-6 ACC) begin NCAA Tournament competition Thursday at 3:10 p.m., against seventh-seeded USC in Greenville, S.C., live on TruTV from Bon Secours Wellness Arena.
