Wyoming’s Josh Adams was recently named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 17 First Team.

Adams is the second Cowboy to earn the accolade over the past three seasons. He joins former UW standout Larry Nance Jr., who claimed it the previous two seasons.

The senior guard averaged 24.7 points per game to lead the Mountain West and end up third in the NCAA during the 2015-16 season. Adams also led the Cowboys at 5.5 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.5 steals per game. He ranked in the top ten of 11 different MW statistical categories.

Adams scored 740 points this season to break Wyoming’s single-season record of 701 by Flynn Robinson in 1964-65, while his nine threes against Colorado State on Feb. 20 tied UW’s single-game record. Adams was also named All-MW First Team by the league’s coaches, tabbed MW Player of the Year by the conference’s media and claimed All-District VIII honors from the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.

Joining him on the NABC All-District 17 First Team are James Webb III of Boise State, Fresno State’s Marvelle Harris and New Mexico’s Elijah Brown and Tim Williams.

The award is voted on by member coaches of the NABC.
