RADFORD – Radford men’s basketball’s DaQuan Smith added another award to his shelf on Wednesday afternoon when he was named to the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID) All-State Second Team.
Voted on by SID’s across the state of Virginia, Smith becomes the ninth player in program history to make a VaSID All-State team and the first since Carlik Jones earned a First Team spot after the 2019-20 season.
Smith played in all 36 games this season, starting 35 of them. Starring as a dynamic scorer and stout on-ball defender, the redshirt junior guard averaged 13.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game while also tallying a total of 36 steals and 11 blocks.
The Holly Springs, Miss. native shot 42.8% from the field, 40.4% from three-point range and 84.4% at the free throw line in an extremely efficient effort this year. Smith was honored twice as Big South Player of the Week, was voted Second Team All-Big South, and garnered Second Team NABC District 3 honors as well.
