Foreman named All-American Enfield 3rd team


Andre Foreman, a Salisbury State junior, has been chosen as a first-team All-American by the National Association of Basketball Coaches. The squad, selected by coaches' votes, is the one officially recognized by the National Collegiate Athletic Association for Division III.

Andy Enfield, a Johns Hopkins senior, was named on the third team.

Foreman, a 6-foot-6 forward, and his school's first basketball All-American, scored a school-record 914, and wound up the leading scorer in Division III with an average of 31.5. He was seventh in rebounding, 12.4. He needs 604 points to become the division's all-time scoring champion.

Salisbury State finished 22-7 and reached the second round of the national playoffs.

Foreman's season included seven games with 40-plus points, and 19 games of 30 or more. He had a double-double (points and rebounds) in 25 of his team's 29 games, and has now scored in double figures in all 80 of his games as a collegian. The Berlin resident has 2,193 career points, the first to reach 2,000 as a junior in state collegiate history.

Enfield, a 6-3 guard from Shippensburg, Pa., carved his place in collegiate basketball history at the foul line. He finished as the NCAA career leader, regardless of division, making 431-for-466 for a percentage of 92.3 during the last four years. This year, he made 123-for-129 for 95.3, the all-time single-season leader in Division III.

Johns Hopkins won the Middle Atlantic Conference-South title for the second time in school history (the other was in 1974), advanced to the second round of the national tournament and ended with a record of 19-10.
