Trewhella named first-team All-NIC

 

Penn’s Matt Trewhella, a 6-foot-5 senior, has been named first-team all-Northern Indiana Conference in boys basketball for 2015-2016.

Trewhella reinvented himself as an exceptional wing after playing the post position as a junior. Trewhella averaged 8.1 points as a junior. He averaged 20.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists a game this season. Trewhella only took one 3-pointer last season, a desperation heave at the buzzer. This season, Trewhella hit 41 three-pointers, connecting on a 3 in 23 of Penn’s 24 games.

“Matt has had a tremendous senior season,” Penn coach Al Rhodes said. “Not only has he led us in scoring, but has also guarded the best player of the opposing team.  His work ethic and leadership have been tremendous!  Matt is very deserving of first team NIC!”
