Following a standout firstie campaign on the hardwood, Tommy Funk of the Army West Point Men's Basketball team was named Third Team All-Met by the Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association (MBWA).
Funk becomes the first cadet to receive the regional honor since Kyle Wilson '16 did as a yearling after the 2013-14 season. It marks the third postseason award for Funk as he was previously named First Team All-Patriot League and National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Third Team All-District in March.
In his final year in an Army jersey, Funk etched his name near the top of several program and league records by piecing together the best season of his career. The Warrington, Pa., native did not miss a single game and averaged 17.5 points, 7.1 assists and 4.4 rebounds per contest, which were all career-high marks. While carrying a league-best 2.5 assist-to-turnover ratio, Funk ranked seventh in the nation with 7.1 assists per game after dishing out a single-season program-best 212 as a firstie.
The firstie point guard put the finishing touches on a historic career by becoming the first player in league history to eclipse 700 career assists as he capped his four-year playing career with 728. He also climbed his way into the top-10 at Army in all-time points after reaching 1,544 following a season in which he dropped a career-high 526.
After playing and starting in all 124 games for the Black Knights, Funk closed out his time as a Black Knight ranked first in career and single-season assists, eighth in career points and seventh in career steals. Story.
