NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — It was a Monarch sweep for Conference USA’s top individual honors. Senior guard B.J. Stith was named player of the year while Jeff Jones was named coach of the year.
Stith picked up the top individual honor after leading the Monarchs to their first regular season C-USA title and first conference crown since winning the 2010 Colonial Athletic Assocation regular season championship.
He was named to the All-Conference USA first team earlier this week.
Stith is the ninth player in Old Dominion program history to earn a conference player of the year award and the first since Alex Loughton won the CAA’s top honor in 2005.
Jones guided Old Dominion to the regular season title with a 13-5 league record and a 23-8 overall mark.
Non-conference wins this season included wins at Syracuse and 10-point over Atlantic 10 regular season champions VCU.
