Matt Mullery Selected All-Ivy In Men’s Basketball

Providence, Rhode Island -  Brown senior center Matt Mullery (Millstone, NJ), Brown’s 16th all-time career leading scorer,  has earned All-Ivy honors for the second consecutive season, being selected second team All-Ivy in a vote of the eight Ancient Eight head basketball coaches.

 

Mullery finished his Brown career as the 16th top scorer in Brown basketball history with 1,134 career points.  In 2009-2010, he led Brown in scoring (15.2 ppg.- 6th in Ivy League), rebounding    (6.2 rpg. -3rd in the Ivy League), assists (86 - 8th in the Ivy League), blocked shots (48 - 3rd in the Ivy League), and field goal percentage (.545 - 3rd in the Ivy League).

 

Mullery’s 163 career blocked shots are a Brown record and rank eighth in the Ivy League record book. His 48 blocked shots this season rank second all-time at Brown. He also tied his own school record with six blocked shots against St. Francis (NY) in Brown’s season opening game. Mullery set a single season Brown record with 59 blocked shots a year ago.

 

Mullery, a first team All-Ivy selection last season, scored a career high 31 points against Sacred Heart earlier this season.  He registered double-doubles against Rhode Island, Kean, Cornell and Penn.  His 22 points and 11 rebounds against Penn helped the Bears to a road sweep of Penn and Princeton for the second time in Brown basketball history.
