NEW ORLEANS, La. – The Gulf Coast Athletic Conference released its Preseason All-GCAC Team as voted on by the league’s seven head coaches this week with Talladega’s Darryl Baker earning Preseason Conference Player of the Year.
The fact that five of the seven teams were represented on the squad with no more than one player per program speaks to the depth and diversity that the GCAC presents from top-to-bottom in the league.
Baker, a senior guard from Jeffersonville, Indiana, was an NAIA All-American Honorable Mention after lighting up the GCAC to the tune of 16 points per game while knocking down an eye-popping 48 percent of three-pointers and 93 percent of his free throws.
