Metro sports: Strickland earns spot in national all-star game

TERRE HAUTE — Rose-Hulman’s Julian Strickland will participate in the Reese’s® Division III College All-Star Game at the NCAA Division III Final Four this weekend.

Strickland was also named a first-team all-Midwest Region selection by d3hoops.com in results released by the national website on Monday.

Strickland was selected by the National Association of Basketball Coaches as one of 18 players to compete in the all-star game at 3 p.m. on Saturday in Salem, Va.  He becomes the first Rose-Hulman men’s basketball player selected to compete in the NABC Division III College All-Star Game.

The game includes the top two players from each NCAA Division III evaluation region along with two at-large fan vote selections. Strickland was joined by Tyler Peters of Wheaton as representatives from the Midwest Region.

Brandon Gries of St. Norbert was a third Midwest Region representative elected by a fan vote. All three Midwest Region representatives will play for the West All-Star Team under Bridgewater coach Bill Leatherman.

The all-region honor marked the second consecutive year that Strickland earned first-team all-Midwest Region honors from d3hoops.com. He becomes just the third player in Rose-Hulman to history to earn multiple all-region honors during his career, joining Kiley Gwaltney in 1995 and 1996 and West Vigo graduate Bryan Egli in 1998 and 1999.

Strickland completed a historic career ranked fifth on Rose-Hulman’s scoring list with 1,747 points. His efforts included 648 points this year for the third-most in a single season in school history and the most by any Engineer since 1970.

Strickland also established new school records for single-season free throws (204) and career free throws (426) during this year’s 22-win season. Rose-Hulman qualified for three NCAA Division III tournaments, won three Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference tournaments and captured two HCAC regular-season championships during his career that included the best overall record for a four-year senior class (82-29).

He was named a second-team NABC All-American and a d3hoops.com all-region selection in 2013 and has been nominated for both awards again this season and earned two HCAC Most Valuable Player awards, two HCAC Tournament MVP honors and was a three-time all-conference selection.

Rose-Hulman tied a school record for wins during Strickland’s junior year (24) and won the third-most games ever this season (22). The team finished 7-18 during the season prior to Strickland’s arrival on campus.

Strickland will be recognized along with coach Jim Shaw during halftime of one of the two national semifinal games Friday.

Baseball

• Carroll earns conference award
— Rose-Hulman’s R.J. Carroll has been named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week for his efforts in last week’s win over Illinois Wesleyan.

Carroll pitched a complete-game three-hit shutout in a 1-0 win over a Wesleyan team that entered last week ranked No. 27 nationally.

He allowed just three singles, including only one hit after the third inning, and recorded eight strikeouts with no walks.

Carroll lowered his season earned run average to 2.12 with the victory. His effort helped Rose-Hulman win two out of three games last weekend to improve to 5-4 on the year.

The Engineers open a three-game HCAC series with Bluffton on Friday.

Fishing

• Close competition
— At Merom, the majority of the big fish in Hoosier Energy’s Turtle Creek Reservoir made their escape Saturday as 109 fishing boats turned out for the Indiana Catfish Association’s (ICA) largest annual event, the Hoosier Energy Turtle Creek Open. The biggest fish reeled in was only 4 pounds.

“To be honest, the nastier the weather, the better they bite. It was just a really pretty day,” ICA President Richard Nungester said.

Temperatures were slightly above 60 degrees with winds of only 0-5 mph. The yields for most anglers were smaller than normal, he said.

The top three finishers were separated by only ounces. First place went to Michael Stout and Mitch Fergesson for 10 catfish weighing a total of 18.5 pounds; second place to Chris and Brandy Wallace for 10 catfish weighing a total of 18.3 pounds; and third place to the team of Donald Rice, Travis Jackson and Daron Yeazel for 10 catfish weighing a total of 18.2 pounds.

The largest qualifying catch of the day went to Roger Richardson and Curtis Hunter for reeling in the 4-pound channel catfish.
