Crandell Earns Second Straight All-CIAA Selection


CHARLOTTE, NC – For the second straight season, Winston-Salem State junior forward William Crandell was selected for the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) All-Conference team. The announcement was made at the 2018 CIAA Tip-Off Luncheon at the Charlotte Convention Center, Monday afternoon.

Crandell earned the selection after a great season for the Bethel, N.C. native. He finished the 2017-18 regular season as the Rams' leading scorer at 17.7 points per game. He was also the team's leading rebounder with 7.5 rebounds per game.

Today's honor marked the second straight season earning a spot on the all-conference team for Crandell. He was also named to the All-CIAA team last season and was also a Pre-Season All-CIAA selection.

Crandell and the Rams will begin play in the 2018 CIAA Men's Basketball Championship Tournament, Wednesday when the team takes on the Virginia Union Panthers in a 12:10 p.m. game at Bojangles' Coliseum in Charlotte, N.C.
