His numbers were Rodney Stuckey like, so it’s fitting that Tyler Harvey has become Eastern Washington University’s first selection since 2006 on the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 6 team announced Wednesday, March 12. The sophomore from Torrance, Calif., was named to the second team.

Harvey, who on Monday was a first team selection on the All-Big Sky Conference team as selected by the league’s head coaches, also joined teammates Venky Jois andDrew Brandon on the All-Big Sky Conference team selected by College Sports Madness. Harvey and Jois were on the second team and Brandon was on the third team.

Previously, Jois earned honorable mention All-Big Sky honors as selected by the coaches for the second-straight season after earning Freshman of the Year honors in the league last season. Jois was also on the College Hoops Daily All-BSC squad.

Harvey scored 677 points in the 2013-14 season to rank third in school history, and his 21.8 average was third behind only the averages of 24.6 and 24.2 that Stuckey had in the 2007 and 2006 seasons, respectively. Stuckey is now in his seventh year with the Detroit Pistons in the NBA, and earned NABC All-District first team honors in both 2006 and 2007 when he also was an honorable mention All-America selection for the Eagles.

With 109 3-pointers in 31 games, Harvey broke the school record of 103 set by Shannon Taylor in 1999. He finished 16 behind the Big Sky record of 124, and his 3.52 average per game ranks fourth in league history.

Brandon was the only player in the Big Sky Conference to rank in the top 30 in scoring (10.4) and the top eight in both rebounding (6.4) and assists (5.1). The transfer from Sierra College in California ranked 51st in NCAA Division I in assists despite being limited late in the year with a hand injury. He is formerly from Corona, Calif., and graduated in 2010 from Santiago High School.
