Long Named Preseason Mid-Major All American
It's not a surprise that Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns' big man Shawn Long is getting some recognition.
After all, the 6-9 junior from Morgan City is one of only two players who average a double double over the last two seasons.
Long has been named a first team preseason All-American by midmajormadness.com.
Long joins two Wichita State players, Ron Baker and Fred Van Vleet, Treveon Graham of VCU and Alan Williams of UCSB.
The Cajuns play their exhibition game against Loyola (NO) on Wednesday, November 5, and begin the regular season Friday, November 14 against Louisiana College.
