KANSAS CITY - On Wednesday, Freed-Hardeman's Kyle Teichmann became the program's second two-time All-American after being selected to the second team in the 2011-2012 NAIA Division I Men's Basketball All-America Teams.
Teichmann, a 6-foot-6 junior forward from Brentwood, Tenn., averaged 21.3 points per game and 7.4 rebounds per game in helping the Lions to their fifth consecutive 20-win season. He was named the TranSouth Conference Co-Player of the Year along with James Justice of Martin Methodist (Tenn.) College, a first-team NAIA All-American.
Last year, Teichmann was a third-team selection. He joins Zack Frey (2009, 2010) as FHU's only two-time All-America selections.
His 21.3 points-per-game average ranked ninth in the NAIA. He also ranked 10th in total points with 682, a number that placed him second all-time in single-season scoring in Lion program history.
Teichmann will enter his senior season with 1,665 career points, putting him within striking distance of Jamie Norsworthy's all-time scoring record of 2,113 points.
