KCAC ReleaseFebruary 25, 2021

WICHITA, Kan. – The Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference is pleased to announce the 2020-21 KCAC Men’s Basketball all-conference teams and award winners. Student-athletes were selected for all awards by vote of the KCAC head men’s basketball coaches.

Bethel College won the regular-season title after going 16-6 overall and 16-4 in KCAC play. The Threshers’ success in the regular season earned accolades for their players and coaches. Jaylon Scott, the Threshers’ do-everything junior guard, was named both the KCAC Men’s Basketball Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year. Scott made an impact all over the floor this season, averaging a double-double and leading the team in points per game (16.32), rebounds per game (11.46), and assists per game (4.73). His rebound per game and assists per game marks ranked No. 1 in the conference in both categories. Scott made the All-Defensive Team as well.

Bethel head coach Jayson Artaz earned the KCAC Men’s Basketball Coach of the Year distinction from his peers.

Perry Carroll of Ottawa was named the 2021 KCAC Men’s Basketball Newcomer of the Year. Carroll was fifth in the conference in points per game (17.28), as well as fourth in the KCAC in field goal percentage (50.3%). Steele Gaston-Chapman of Southwestern was named the conference’s Freshman of the Year following a season in which he led the Moundbuilders in points per game (13.07), assists per game (2.93), and steals per game (1.11).
