More Postseason Honors for Justin Wright-Foreman

Hofstra sophomore & iLuvBBall Alum Justin Wright-Foreman continued to be recognized for his outstanding second season as today he was named All-Met Second Team by the Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association.

The award will be handed out at the 84th NIT/MBWA All-Met Haggerty Awards dinner on Wednesday, April 26, at the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown, New York.

Wright-Foreman was also named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches All-District First Team and the All-Colonial Athletic Association Second Team.

Wright-Foreman earns All-Met honors after averaging 18.1 points per game during his sophomore campaign. He concluded the regular season by scoring in double figures 22 straight times and reached the 20-point plateau in 11 of Hofstra’s last 12 games.

In the CAA rankings he was first in scoring in conference games and third in scoring overall. After scoring just 44 points as a freshman he has exploded for 580 in 2016-17, including four games of 30 or more points. He was named the CAA Player of the Week and was also named the Met Basketball Writers Association Player of the Week on a pair of occasions. His career-high of 35 points came in the Pride’s road win at William & Mary on February 23 when he was 11-21 from the field and drained seven three-pointers to fall one shy of tying the school single game record. Wright-Foreman ranked second on the team with 67 three-pointers this season.
