The NAIA announced the student-athletes selected to play in the 2020 NAIA All-Star Basketball in Kansas City on Mar. 24, and No. 7 Lewis-Clark State’s Josiah Westbrook was named to the West Team. NAIA DI and DII seniors were nominated by their coaches and selected by the NAIA All-Star Game committee.
“As a program we are excited for Josiah to be honored with the opportunity to participate in the NAIA All-Star Game,” coach Austin Johnson said. “Josiah has been a huge component to this year’s record-setting season both offensively and defensively. His willingness to put the team first had also allowed him to have a tremendous season individually.”
Westbrook has been one of the nation’s top 3-point shooters, ranking in the NAIA DI’s top 10 in 3-point free throw percentage all season. At the end of the regular season, his 47.7 percentage ranked eighth. He set the LC State record with consecutive free throws made with 39. Westbrook is averaging 12.5 points per game.
“I am honored and grateful for this opportunity to represent our program,” Westbrook said. “I am especially thankful for my brothers and coaches who push me every day.”
