Pitt-Bradford men's basketball player Keith Burgess was named a second-team all-AMCC selection Tuesday.

Burgess, a sophomore guard, was the only Panther honored by the conference. It was the first time he received all-AMCC recognition.

He led Pitt-Bradford in scoring with 14 points a game, ranking him eighth in the AMCC. Burgess was third among all AMCC players in free throw shooting with a mark of 82 percent. He was tops on the team with 62 assists and 53 steals, and totaled four games with 20 or more points.

In conference play, the Hillside, N.J., native shot a team-leading 44 percent from behind the three-point line. He scored a career-high 27 points against Penn State Altoona while going 10-10 from the free-throw line, a feat he has accomplished three times in his career.

Pitt-Bradford finished sixth in the AMCC this year, winning three games in the final week to reach the postseason for the fifth straight year.
