Albany State guard Flem Tucker is coming home from the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference basketball tournament with some hardware.
Tucker was named SIAC player of the year at the conference's annual awards banquet last night.
Tucker, who led the conference in scoring with an average of more than 22 points a game, was also a first team All-SIAC selection.
Senior guard John I. Davis was selected to the conference's All-Academic team.
The Albany State Lady Rams also had a big winner. Cydney Smith was named SIAC's freshmen of the year. She was also a second team all conference pick. Sophomore Stephanie Cody was picked to the women's All-Academic selection.
