Wright State’s Loudon Love named to Lou Henson All-America Team


After averaging just shy of a double-double for the season, Wright State big man Loudon Love has been named to the 2019-20 Lou Henson All-America Team, which honors the nation’s best mid-major players in Division I college basketball.

A total of 40 players comprised this year’s All-America Team, with Love being the lone representative from the Horizon League. This is Love’s second consecutive Lou Henson All-America selection after also receiving the honor after his 2018-19 campaign.

Love finished the 2019-20 season averaging 15.9 points per game and 9.7 rebounds per contest, turning in double digit scoring performances in 21 of his 26 regular season games played, including 17 in league play. He finished with 11 double-double performances this season, including eight in league play, and will enter the 2020-21 campaign just 26 rebounds shy of becoming program’s all-time leading rebounder and surpassing Bill Edwards’ 907 total boards.

Love’s 3.85 offensive rebounds per game average finished No. 10th in the country, while his 9.7 rebounds/game average was No. 38 nationally and his 261 total rebounds were the 86th-most in the country.

Offensively, Love became the 33rd member of Wright State’s 1,000 Point Club during non-conference play and goes into the offseason with 1,393 career points in three seasons, which is No. 15 on Wright State’s all-time scoring list. Next on the list is a pair of Raiders from the program’s early years – Bob Grote (1972–76) at No. 14 with 1,406 career points and Lyle Falknor (1972–76) at No. 13 with 1,418 career points.

The Lou Henson Award and All-America Team honors Henson, the former Illinois and New Mexico State coach who won 775 games in 41 seasons. Henson is the winningest coach in Illinois basketball history with 423 victories and in New Mexico State history with 289 victories. He one of only 11 coaches to take two different schools to the NCAA Final Four. His teams have made 19 NCAA appearances and four NIT appearances, including a Final Four appearance in 1989 at Illinois.

Wright State head coach Scott Nagy‘s first coaching job following graduation was at Illinois under Henson, and Nagy was part of two NCAA tournament teams in his two seasons on the staff, including the Final Four trip in 1989. While at Illinois, Nagy coached alongside his dad, Dick, who was a longtime assistant under Henson.
