Henry Named Second Team All-OVC

Complete Release from the OVC

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – On the eve of the Cougars' return to the Ohio Valley Conference men's basketball tournament, SIUE senior forward Jalen Henry has been named to the All-OVC second team.

"It's great to see Jalen recognized for his efforts," SIUE Head Coach Jon Harris said. "He's grown so much in our three years here. Stepping into a role where opposing defenses key on you every game is not easy, but he's taken that in stride."

Henry leads the team in scoring at 16.3 points per game and rebounding at 7.0 rebounds a contest. He is one of four players in the OVC to appear in the top 10 in both categories.

"His teammates enjoy playing with him," Harris continued. "I've always felt that that says a lot about you as an individual. He's a guy that helps you enjoy coming to work every day."

The native of Springfield, Illinois, has scored in double figures in 26 of SIUE's 29 games this season and has eight games of 20 or more points. Earlier this season, Henry scored a career-high 35 points in a win at Eastern Kentucky, it is the second-highest scoring total by an OVC player this year.

No 8 seed SIUE opens OVC Tournament play against fifth-seeded Tennessee Tech Wednesday night in Evansville, Indiana.
