Bain grabs conference, regional honors

By Doug Fitzgerald published March 9, 2004

Having already secured a number of school records, senior forward Jack Bain added conference and regional honors to his resume this week.

On Sunday, the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference announced that Bain had been named first-team All-RMAC West Division. On Tuesday, he landed on the Daktronics All-North Central Region second team.

"Honors are nice, but they can't compare to winning," said Bain, whose team struggled to a 5-22 record. "I'd trade them for a few more "W's."

Although just 6-foot-5, Bain led NCAA Division II in rebounding at 12.4 per game. He was also third in the RMAC in scoring and steals, averaging 18.9 points and 2.11 steals per game.

Joining Bain on the RMAC All-West Division team were Mesa State's David Dunbar, Adams State's Brandon Norris, Colorado State-Pueblo's Alfred Sanchez and Fort Lewis' Ryan Sonnek. Only Sanchez was named first-team All-RMAC.

The Daktronics All-North Central Region first team included Tommie King of South Dakota, Alex Carlson of St. Cloud State, James Staten of Minnesota State, Mankato, Nick Branting of Nebraska-Kearney and Charles Hanks of Bemidji State. Joining Bain on the second team were Sanchez, Colorado School of Mines' Stephen Bahl, South Dakota State's Andy Moeller and Colorado Christian's Matt Vaughn.

Bain's teammate, Jimmie Pack, was named All-RMAC honorable mention.
