ST. LOUIS – Saint Louis senior forward Dwayne Evans is one of 30 men’s basketball players in the NCAA selected as a candidate for the 2013-14 Senior CLASS Award.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievement in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.
Evans, a four-year starter, has helped the Billikens to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances. Last season, he led the team in scoring and rebounding as SLU captured Atlantic 10 Conference regular-season and tournament championships. He was a first-team All-Conference pick and was named to the NABC All-District second team. Evans was named Most Outstanding Player of the A-10 Championship.
A business administration major, Evans was named to the A-10 All-Academic team a season ago. He is active in the community as well, volunteering with the Special Needs Soccer Association (SPENSA) as well as Athletes in Action. This past summer, Evans traveled to Africa on a goodwill basketball tour with AIA.
The list of 30 candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists midway through the regular season. Those 10 names will be placed on the official ballot, which will be distributed through a nationwide voting system to media, coaches and fans. Together, they will select the one candidate who best exemplifies excellence in the four Cs of community, classroom, character and competition.
