TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Indiana State Guard Cooper Neese was selected to the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook All-Missouri Valley Conference preseason team, the organization announced Wednesday morning.
Neese earns his first preseason accolade heading into the 2022-23 season after a stellar season that saw the Cloverdale, Ind. native. receive All-MVC Third Team accolades. The senior guard was also recognized on the MVC’s Most Improved Team by the conference bureau.
Neese made great progress offensively in his first season under the head coach Josh Schertz as the goaltender set new career highs in points (15.0) and minutes (35.6) per game. He led the team in scoring and was third overall in the conference in minutes played, while shooting 39.9% from the field, 30.5% from the three-point line and 81.3% from the free throw line.
Unafraid to pull the trigger from the outside, Neese has connected on multiple three-pointers in 16 different games and hit at least five triples in five different contests. He added seven 20-point contests and a pair of 30-point games to become the 41st member of Indiana State’s 1,000-point club.
Neese’s selection highlighted the Sycamores as Indiana State was selected fifth overall in the organization’s MVC preseason poll. Drake was selected as the MVC preseason favorite, while Southern Illinois, Bradley and Belmont rounded out the top five.
Drake’s sophomore Tucker DeVries was selected as pre-season player of the year, while SIU’s Marcus Domask, Drake’s DJ Wilkins and Valparaiso’s Ben Krikke were also honored in the pre-season squad. All Conference season.
