A pair of Eastern Oregon basketball players garnered spots on the NAIA’s all-American second team, the association announced Thursday afternoon.

Junior Maya Ah You Dias was selected as a second-team all-American after helping the women’s team to a 30-5 record and a trip to the Elite Eight last weekend at the NAIA Division II National Championships.

McGriff, a senior who was an integral part of the turnaround for the men’s team, was also named second team after EOU went 24-9 and reached the second round of the national tournament.

Joining McGriff in receiving honors for the men was senior Trell Washington, who garnered an honorable mention nod.
