Wright State men’s basketball player Julius Mays was named the Horizon League Newcomer of the Year Monday by league coaches and media.† The junior guard was also selected to the league’s Second Team.

The Marion, Indiana native averaged 14.2 points and 2.9 rebounds as he played in 29 games this season, shooting 43% from the field, 84% from the free throw line and connecting on 48 three-pointers.† He also led the team in steals (41) and assists (72).† His career-high 33 points versus UIC on January 25 was also the season high by any Horizon League player this season. In that game, he connected on 19 free throws, setting a new school record and tying the League mark.

Mays is WSU’s fifth player to receive the Newcomer of the Year Award since 1995: Vitaly Potapenko (1995), Kevin Melson (1999), Jesse Deister (2001) and Cain Doliboa (2002).
