Plummer nets first-team All-GLVC honors

All-GLVC Release

Norman Plummer

EVANSVILLE, Ind.University of Southern Indiana senior forward Norman Plummer (Cincinnati, Ohio) was named first-team All-GLVC in a vote by the league's head coaches.

Plummer had an amazing year with the Screaming Eagles, averaging a league-best 19.5 points per game as well as a team-high 10.7 rebounds per contest. In 2007-08, Plummer recorded 13 double-doubles, including five straight to end the season.

He scored in double-figures 24 times this season, reaching the 20-point plateau 14 times. Plummer posted a season-high 30 points in USI's 83-60 victory over Ferris State University.

"Norman was the cog that gave us a chance," Head Coach Rick Herdes said. "He is a terrific player with a great work ethic and will certainly make money as a professional overseas.

"Unfortunately we didn't go farther, or he would have been the player of the year," Herdes concluded.

Plummer was ranked in seven GLVC statistical categories and was in the top 10 of six of those categories. Including scoring, Plummer ranked first in offensive rebounds per game (3.59), second in total rebounds, third in defensive rebounds per game (7.11), seventh in field goal percentage (.579), eighth in minutes played per game (33.07), and 12th in steals per game (1.52).

If Plummer's scoring lead holds up, he will become the first USI player to lead the GLVC in scoring since Stephen Jackson led the league with 21.6 points per game in 1984-85, when USI was still known as Indiana State University-Evansville.

Kentucky Wesleyan College's Jeff Fahnbulleh was named the GLVC Player of the Year, while Northern Kentucky University's Dennis Gagai was the GLVC Freshman of the Year. Kentucky Wesleyan's Todd Lee was voted as the GLVC Coach of the Year.
