Angelo Warner, a junior basketball player at Morehead State, has been tabbed by College Sports Madness as a Preseason, Second Team, All-Ohio Valley Conference selection.

"Angelo had a very good sophomore year, and we're expecting even more from him as a junior," Head Coach Sean Woods said.  "This will be Angelo's third season of Division I basketball, and we plan on him being a major contributor."

Warner played in 31 games for the Eagles last year.  He ranked second on the team with 10.9 points per game.  The 6-foot-2 guard also collected 4.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.7 steals per contest.

Warner shot 43 percent from the floor and 83 percent from the free-throw line.  He ranked sixth among conference players in steals and eighth in free-throw percentage.

"Angelo is a very versatile player," Woods said.  "He can knock down outside shots, take people off the dribble and create scoring opportunities for teammates.  He also rebounds well for a guard and puts defensive pressure on the opponent."

A native of Orlando, Florida, Warner reached double figures in scoring on 20 occasions last season.  He drilled 16-of-18 from the charity stripe en route to a career-best 24 points against league opponent Tennessee State on January 26, 2013.

Morehead State finished the 2012-13 season 15-18 overall and 8-8 in conference action.  The Eagles open the 2013-14 campaign on November 2 with a home exhibition against St. Catharine (KY).
