MILWAUKEE – For the first time since the 2014-15 season, a pair of student-athletes from the Marian men’s basketball program have earned All-NACC recognition.

Junior David Britton (Hartford, Wis.) led the offense for Marian nearly all season and earned a spot on the All-NACC first team in his first year as a Sabre.  Britton averaged 19.4 points per game, fourth in the NACC, and was especially a threat from deep ranking 17th in the nation, first in the NACC with 40 made three-pointers.  He finished with double-digit points in all 11 games this season and had four performances where he scored 25 or more points.  He also hit at least four three-pointers in all but four games this year.  His top performance of the season came in the finale against Edgewood where he scored 31 points shooting 12-of-16 (.750) from the field with 4-of-5 (.800) of his field goal attempts coming from beyond the arc.  Britton was able to earn a NACC player of the week selection after he led Marian to a sweep against Lakeland.  In that series, Britton averaged 22.0 points per game and shot 15-of-28 (.536) from the field with eight made three-pointers.  Along with his scoring, Britton led the team this season with 30 assists and averaged 3.9 rebounds per game.

Sophomore Tyler Gouin (Hartland, Wis.) opened his Sabre career with a dazzling 39-point performance and didn’t slow down earning himself an All-NACC honorable mention selection.  Gouin was named the NACC player of the week following that performance against Maranatha Baptist where he shot 15-of-18 (.833) from the field and 6-of-8 (.750) from beyond the arc.  For the season, he averaged 17.3 points per game putting him eighth in the NACC.  He finished with double-digit points in eight of 11 games this season with at least 20 points in five of those games.  Along with his performance against Maranatha Baptist, he also had a 28-point performance in the finale against MSOE.  His efficient scoring came in handy in the opener against Lakeland as well where he shot 10-of-13 from the field to finish with 22 points.  Gouin also averaged 4.3 rebounds per game and had nine steals to go with 22 assists.
