Obery Chosen For All-Met Team

RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Felician College senior Antoine Obery (Roselle, N.J./Abraham Clark) has been named to the 2012-13 All-Met Division II Men's First Team by the Metropolitan Basketbal Writers Association. Balloting, which was announced on Thursday, was performed by area head coaches.

Obery, a 6-foot-4 forward/guard, is an All-Met selection for the second time. He was a Second Team honoree in his true sophomore campaign of 2009-10. This year, he started all 27 games, and averaged 18.9 points (3rd in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference), 10.4 rebounds (3rd) and 2.74 assists (14th) while shooting 55.2 percent from the floor (4th).

Obery was also named to the All-CACC First Team and the Daktronics all-East Region Second Team.

A four-year veteran and three-year starter, Obery is Felician's all-time leading rebounder with 848. His 1,414 points rank third on the school career scoring list, and he is also among the top five in school annals in assists and blocks. He is the fifth Golden Falcon male to earn All-Met honors, and the second to do so more than once. (Devon Young was an all-Met selection in all four of his seasons from 2007-11.) Obery is a 2008 graduate of Abraham Clark High.

Felician posted a 12-15 overall won-lost record in 2012-13 under fourth-year head coach David DeFerrari. The Golden Falcons won six of their final eight regular-season games to qualify for the CACC Tournament with a 9-9 league record.

Obery and the rest of the All-Met teams from both genders and all three NCAA divisions will be honored at the 80th Annual NIT/MBWA Haggerty Awards Dinner on Monday, April 15, at the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown, N.Y. The All-Met awards are the oldest set of continuous college basketball awards presented by the media.
