EDINBORO, Pa. —
The postseason honors keep coming for Central Oklahoma’s Josh Gibbs, who earned second-team recognition on the Daktronics Division II All-America Team.
The senior guard/forward becomes UCO’s 22nd All-American and the first since Dauntae Williams in 2011.
Gibbs averaged 21.6 points and 11.1 rebounds a game this season to rank among the national leaders in both categories while adding 2.5 assists a contest in leading the Bronchos to a 20-10 record. He made a team-high 81 3-pointers and recorded 20 double-doubles, fourth-best in Division II this season.
A native of Kansas City, Mo., Gibbs was a first-team All-Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association pick, a first-team Daktronics All-Central Region selection and a first-team National Association of Basketball Coaches All-Central District choice.
Gibbs finished the season ranked fifth in rebounds (333) and ninth in points (648) on Central Oklahoma’s single-season list and he ranks 26th in career scoring with 1,155 points in two years.
The All-America team is sponsored by Daktronics, Inc., an acknowledged world leader in scoring, timing and programmable display systems for virtually every sport at every level of competition. The teams are voted on by NCAA Division II members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
