VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., March 4, 2010 - Morgan State University swept top honors as the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) announced the 2010 All-MEAC men's basketball regular season honorees on Thursday. All awards were voted on by the conference's head coaches and sports information directors. 

Senior guard Reggie Holmes was named the 2010 MEAC Player of the Year.  Bear's head coach Todd Bozeman was named the MEAC Coach of the Year, for the third straight season.  DeWayne Jackson was named the 2010 MEAC Rookie of the Year, while sophomore forward Kevin Thompson garnered the Defensive Player of the Year honors. 

Reggie Holmes leads the MEAC in scoring with 22.0 points per game, 9th best in the nation.  He is the Bears third all-time leading scorer with 1,901 points and has scored 30 or more points five times this season.   Holmes leads the MEAC in made 3-point field goals (88) and ranks No. 2 in free-throws (.821) and No. 11 in steals (1.4 spg). Holmes earned the MEAC's Player of the Week accolade five times this season and was named to the Dr. Pepper All-Tournament Team while competing in the two-day classic.  Holmes, the 2009 MEAC All-Tournament MVP, was also named to the 2010 MEAC First-Team. 

Todd Bozeman earns his third straight MEAC Coach of the Year honor after guiding the Bears to their third consecutive regular-season title with a current 14-1 conference mark and 23-9 overall record.  The Bears are currently ranked 20th in the College Insiders Mid-Major Poll.  Since his arrival to Morgan State Bozeman has led the Bears to a 34-6 home record, including a 10-1 record this season.  Bozeman led the Bears to the 2009 MEAC Tournament title and earned the conference's automatic berth to the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament.   Following the superb 2008-09 campaign, Bozeman was named the 2009 Hugh Durham Award, which recognizes the outstanding coach at the mid-major level. 

DeWayne Jackson, a 6-8 forward from Bowie, Md., currently averages 10.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and tallied 26 steals, 25 blocks, and 22 assists in 32 games this season.  Jackson leads the MEAC in 3-point field goal percentage (.458) and has scored in double-digits 19 times this season. Jackson was selected the MEAC's Rookie of the Week four times this season and was selected to the 2010 MEAC All-Rookie team.

Kevin Thompson has proven to be a dominate force throughout the 2009-10 season.  Only a sophomore, Thompson leads the MEAC in rebounds per game (11.7), third best in the nation, and double-doubles (19), fourth best in the NCAA Division I.  He has earned the MEAC's Defensive Player of the Week honor seven times this season and was selected the Player of the Week twice.  He currently averages 12.6 points (10th in MEAC), 11.7 rebounds and shoots 51-percent from the field (157-306).  He holds the nation's best rebounding performance this season with a career-high 25 boards against non-conference foe Towson.  Thompson was also selected to the 2010 MEAC First-Team.

Joining Holmes and Thompson on the MEAC's First-Team is Michael Delaoch (Norfolk State), C.J. Reed (Bethune-Cookman), and Jason Flagler (South Carolina State).

The Morgan State Bears clinched their third straight regular season title with a 65-61 win over Maryland Eastern Shore (Feb. 20).  The Bears will enter tournament play as the No. 1 seed and will face the winner of the No. 8/No.9 matchup on Wednesday, March 10 beginning at 7 p.m. 

The Delaware State Hornets will battle Maryland Eastern Shore for the conference's sole runners-up position tonight.  A win over the Hawks would secure the Hornets as the 2010 runners-up while a loss would give DSU a share of the second place honor with the South Carolina State Bulldogs.  Regardless of the outcome, the Hornets will enter tournament play as the No. 2 seed and compete on Wednesday, March 10 against the winner of the No. 7/No.10 matchup immediately following the Bears' game. 

The 2010 regular season champion, regular-season runners-up, first-team members and top honorees including Player, Rookie, Defensive and Coach of the Year selections, will be recognized in pre-game presentations prior to their first games of the 2010 MEAC Basketball Tournament.  The tournament spans March 9-13 at the Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
