YSU’s Quisenberry earns honor

Kansas City, Mo. — Youngstown State sophomore Darius Quisenberry has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 12 Second-Team, the association announced on Monday.

Quisenberry, a 2019-20 All-Horizon League First-Team selection, is the first YSU sophomore and third player since 2014 to earn NABC all-district accolades. The others were Cameron Morse in 2017 and Kendrick Perry in 2013 and 2014.

“I’m really happy for Darius to receive this type of recognition,” YSU coach Jerrod Calhoun said. “He is a tireless worker and very deserving of this acknowledgement and respect.”

Quisenberry scored 549 points with 118 rebounds, 138 assists and 48 steals and averaged 16.6 points, 3.6 rebounds 4.2 assists and 1.5 steals per game. He ranked fifth in the Horizon League in scoring and assists per game, fourth in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.5), sixth in field-goal percentage (.422), steals per game and free-throw percentage (.792), and 13th with 1.5 3-pointers made per game.

The Springfield, Ohio, native scored a career-high 41 points against Wright State on Feb. 20, 2020. He became the fourth YSU Division I player to score at least 40 points in a game and his 41 points rank as the sixth-highest single-game total.
