Pringley Named All-CACC In Men's Basketball

RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Felician College senior J.R. Pringley (Elizabeth, N.J./Linden) has been named to the 2014-15 All-Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Men's Basketball Third Team. The conference's award winners were voted on by its 14 head coaches and announced on Friday.

Pringley, a 6-foot-5 small forward, started all 25 games for Felician this season. He is the CACC's fifth-leading scorer at 17.4 points per game, and also ranks fifth in the league in rebounding (8.0 pg) and ninth in field-goal percentage (.518). He scored 30 or more points in a game on three occasions.

Pringley is an All-CACC honoree for the first time.

"J.R. improved every season he was with us," said sixth-year Felician head coach Dave DeFerrari. "By his junior year, he really blossomed into one of the top players in the league. More importantly, he is a quality person. I'm very happy for him, as he is truly deserving of this honor."

Pringley leaves the Golden Falcon program ranked No. 7 on its all-time scoring list with 1,058 points. He also accumulated 410 career rebounds and 143 assists.

Felician completed 2014-15 with a won-lost record of 6-19. The Golden Falcons tied for sixth place in the CACC North Division with a 6-13 league mark.

Felician has now had seven student-athletes earn all-conference honors this academic year.
