University of Wisconsin-Superior’s Jake Smith, a freshman forward from Rhinelander, was recently selected to the national all freshman team by D-III News.
Smith averaged 17.6 points and 5.3 rebounds per game in his first season as a Yellowjacket. In addition, Smith was the only freshman named to the WIAC first team.
“This is a great honor for Jake,” UWS coach Dave Buchanan said. “It is nice to see Jake receive this recognition after working extremely hard last year. I know he will use this as motivation to keep getting better. His coaches and teammates are very happy for him.”
Smith will return to UWS next season with 10 other returners that finished fifth in the WIAC and advanced to the semifinals of the conference tournament.
