(MEAC) Delaware State senior center Kendall Gray was named the 2015 MEAC Player and Defensive Player of the Year.

Gray averaged 12.4 points and 12.4 rebounds, while starting all 30 games.

He leads the nation in total rebounds, defensive rebounds and rebounds per game, hauling in a total of 371 boards this season, including 106 on the offensive end.

He also ranks seventh in the NCAA in double-doubles with 17.

Gray concluded the season with 83 blocks, 33 assists and 13 steals. In his final game of the season he recorded 33 points and 30 rebounds in a 104-92 victory over Coppin State.

This is the second time in conference history that a player earned both honors during the same season.

In 2011-12, Norfolk State’s Kyle O’Quinn became the first MEAC player to earn both honors in the same season.
