ST. LOUIS - For the second-consecutive year, Illinois State senior forward Jackie Carmichael has earned a spot on the Missouri Valley Conference All-Tournament Team, announced following Sunday's championship game between Creighton and Wichita State.

Carmichael was the only all-tournament player who did not play in the title game. CU's Doug McDermott was named MVC Tournament Most Valuable Player, while Gregory Echenique also represented Creighton on the all-tournament team. Malcolm Armstead and Carl Hall earned Valley All-Tournament accolades for Wichita State.

Carmichael averaged a team-best 18.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 4.0 blocks during Illinois State's two games at the Valley Tournament. He also shot 52 percent from the field. The Redbirds finished 1-1 in the tournament.

During ISU's quarterfinal victory over Northern Iowa Friday night, Carmichael contributed 15 points, with a game-best 10 rebounds, for his 15th double-double of the season and the 35th of his career. He also blocked five shots, which tied ISU's Valley Tournament single-game record. Three of his blocks came in the final two minutes.

In the Redbirds' semifinal loss to Wichita State Saturday evening, Carmichael scored a game-high 22 points, with five rebounds and three blocked shots. He also hit a three-pointer against the Shockers.

Carmichael, who was also a regular-season Valley First Team selection, has averaged 17.4 points and 9.3 rebounds this season. Your online source for Illinois State Athletics, tickets, Weisbecker Scholarship Fund gifts, multimedia, Redbird merchandise, photos and more.
