All-Conference Honors Announced By the SCA

Coaches of the South Central Association met this week and made their all-conference selections in basketball.

With only a handful of slots to fill on the all-conference teams, many good athletes must be passed over. At the same time, to be named as an all-conference player is quite an honor.
