Sam Houston State senior guard Cameron Delaney is the 2019 Southland Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Year, the league announced Monday along with its all-conference teams.

Delaney, who starred at Harker Heights High School, led the conference in 3-point field-goal percentage (49.1) in league play, draining 52 of his 106 attempts and averaging the second-most treys per game (2.9). In Southland contests, he finished among the top-10 in points (15.6) and rebounds (6.3) per game and free-throw percentage (85.2), helping the Bearkats claim their fourth Southland Conference regular-season title.

Delaney was one of three former Killeen ISD standouts receiving conference honors.

Stephen F. Austin senior guard Shannon Bogues, from Ellison, was named to the second team.

Delaney’s SHSU teammate and brother, Josh, also a senior guard and former Knight, earned a spot on the third team.
