Men’s basketball players pick up post-season awards

Two players from Rowan College at Burlington County men’s basketball team, Region XIX Division II Runners-Up, earned post-season recognitions.

Guard Damian Archer, of Baltimore, Md., earned First Team honors for both the Region XIX Division II Men’s Basketball All-Region and Garden State Athletic Conference Division II Men’s Basketball All-GSAC Team.

Forward Goree Venable-Gonzalez, of Bayonne, N.J., was named to the Region XIX Division II Second Team. 

The Barons had not advanced to the Region XIX playoffs since the 2012-2013 season. They secured the runner-up spot by advancing to the championship game where they ultimately fell to Essex County College 70-86. They finished the season with a 16-10 overall record.
