On Monday, the Horizon League unveiled their all-league teams, and senior forward Kahliel Spear was named to the Third Team.

Spear has been a dominant presence on the offensive end of the floor, eclipsing his career-high in points twice this year, scoring 25 points in the team’s win over Milwaukee on Jan. 27.

He then put up 27 points in the team’s comeback victory over Youngstown State on Feb.13.

Spear is averaging a career-high 14.5 points per game in his senior season while averaging 7.6 rebounds per game.

He’s joined by Tre Gomillion of Cleveland State, Purdue Fort Wayne’s Jalon Pipkins, Damaria Franklin of UIC and Youngstown State’s Dwayne Cohill.

Robert Morris will take the quick bus trip up I-376 to take on the Youngstown State Penguins on Tuesday in the first round of the Keeps Horizon League Tournament at 7:00 p.m.
