Styers connected on 67.2% (41-of-61) of his field-goal attempts this spring — that percentage ranking sixth within NCAA Div. III and third among guards in games played through April 18.

Against Wabash, Styers went 12-of-14 from the floor, 2-of-2 from 3-point range and 4-of-4 at the line, and he added seven rebounds.

A game later Styers dropped 19 points versus Denison University on Feb. 26 and finished with a career-high nine rebounds. He made his first 17 free throws on the season, tallied six double-digit scoring performances and logged five games with at least six rebounds.

Styers was a key in Wooster’s 81-78 exhibition win over archrival Wittenberg University on Feb. 6, a game in which the Scots blitzed the Tigers with a 10-3 run in the final minute to win. Against Wittenberg, Styers tallied two steals in the final 16 seconds.

Styers’ selection gives Wooster a first-team honoree in back-to-back years for the first time since the Scots had a three-year run from 2009-12. Wooster now has 29 all-time All-Great Lakes Region selections.
