Plummer named first team All-Great Lakes Region
Daktronics All-Great Lakes Region Release
— University of Southern Indiana senior forward Norman Plummer
(Cincinnati, Ohio) was named Daktronics first-team All-Great Lakes Region in a vote of the region sports information directors.
In addition to being named to the All-Great Lakes Region team, Plummer has been named the Division II Bulletin Player of the Month for December GLVC Player of Week twice and first team All-GLVC.
Plummer had an amazing year with the Screaming Eagles. He remains the GLVC leader with 19.5 points per game and number two in conference with 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.
Plummer was ranked in seven GLVC statistical categories and was in the top 10 of six of those categories. Including scoring and rebounding, 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.
In addition to Plummer, the GLVC was represented on the region's first team by Drury University's Collins Harris, the Great Lakes Region Player of the Year, and Kentucky Wesleyan College Jeff Fahnbulleh. Grand Valley State University's Callistus Eziukwu and Jason Jamerson rounded out the first team.
