BYUH's Foyle earns All-American honorsBrigham Young-Hawaii senior Alexus Foyle was named to the Daktronics NCAA II All-America second team yesterday.
Foyle, from St. Vincent, was second in Division II in scoring, at 26.7 points a game. He also averaged 5.7 rebounds.
The forward was the PacWest Player of the Year.
"I would have rather won the tournament and played on the mainland, but being an All-American again is nice," Foyle said. "It is good for my resume and good for Hawaii and the school."
