El-Amin: Honorable Mention All-American

Stony Brook senior Muhammad El-Amin added another award to his trophy case as he was named an Honorable Mention All-American by the AP on Monday, the first ever Seawolf to gain postseason All-American honors.

El-Amin was named the America East Player of the Year back on March 5, the first Stony Brook player to do so, following a stellar year for the Seawolves.

El-Amin led the team in scoring with 19.1 ppg during conference play, and finished his career just 29 points away from 1,000.  He also set a program record for points in a season with 517.

Stony Brook won its first-ever regular season America East championship in 2010, setting records in overall wins (22) and conference wins (13).

The Seawolves played in the postseason for the first time in their D-I history, hosting Illinois in the NIT tournament.

El-Amin joins the likes of Andy Rautins of Syracuse, Kyle Singler of Duke and Gordon Hayward of Butler as an Honorable Mention.

Both Hayward and Singler have taken their team to the NCAA Final Four this season.

El-Amin was the only America East player to be awarded the honor.
