University of Central Arkansas guard LaQuentin Miles earned third-team All-Southland Conference honors Tuesday after leading the Bears in scoring this season.

Miles, a sophomore from Jacksonville, averaged 14.9 points per game, good for fourth in the conference. He led the SLC in steals with 2.0 per game, was third in offensive rebounds (3.1) and was in the Top 15 in field goal percentage at 47.8 percent.

Miles, who redshirted last season after transferring from Southeast Missouri, had five double-doubles this season, including career highs of 29 points and 12 rebounds in a victory over Henderson State in December.

“I’m proud of Q for receiving this honor,’ UCA head coach Corliss Williamson said. "Especially after sitting out a year. I think we’ve only seen a little bit of the talent he possesses as a player. I still don’t think he’s scratched the surface as to how good he can be.

"Hopefully this honor will inspire him to work even harder to be the best player he can be."

Miles (6-5, 190) was named the Southland Conference Player of the Week on Dec. 12. He scored in double figures 19 times this season and added 60 assists and 57 steals on the year.
