Cumberland Dukes sophomore forward Haashim Wallace has been named Second Team All-Region 19 and Second Team All-Conference (GSAC).  

"Pops" as his teammates call him, leads the team in Points per game averaging 15.4 and is second in rebounds and steals.  Additionally, he is second on the team in Field Goal percentage (53.3%) and 3-Point field goal percentage (33.3%).

Wallace made national waves with an emphatic alley oop dunk in a home matchup against the Ocean County Vikings.  On a two on one break, freshman guard Tyler Lunsford sent a perfectly lobbed pass to Wallace, who then sent the ball home while jumping over an Viking defender.  The video, which went viral, eventually made its way to ESPN and their SportsNation and SportsCenter broadcasts.

A link to the video is listed below.
