The 2015-16 D3hoops.com All-Region teams have been announced.
Players were nominated for these awards by the Sports Information Directors at the various schools, who were contacted multiple times as the season wound down to remind them to make their players eligible. There were 776 players nominated nationwide. The ballot was then made available to SIDs, who voted for a predetermined number of players in their region.
It's the 15th season D3hoops.com has named All-Region teams.
The regional Rookie of the Year award honors the top freshman in each region, while D3hoops.com also names a regional Coach of the Year.
