YSU's Kendrick Perry

Youngstown State senior Kendrick Perry has been named All-Horizon League First-Team for the third consecutive season in a vote of the head coaches, sports information directors and media, the league announced on Monday (March 3).

Perry is just the 13th player in Horizon League history to earn first-team laurels in three straight seasons.

For the second time in three years, Perry led the Horizon League in overall scoring with 20.9 points per game. He scored at least 30 points times this season, including a career-high 35 against Milwaukee on Feb. 20.

He scored a league-best 647 points, which ranks sixth on the YSU single-season list and scored in double figures in all 31 games. His 60 3-pointers made are a career high and rank eighth on the school’s single-season chart. He is also just the seventh player in school history to make 60 3-pointers in a season.

Perry also ranked second in the league with 2.4 steals per game and a 2.4 assist-to-turnover ratio, tied for fourth with 4.3 assists per game, and ninth with a .505 field-goal percentage.

Perry, who is the Horizon League and Youngstown State all-time steals leader with 245, was also named to the Horizon League All-Defensive Team. Perry broke his own Youngstown State single-season steals record with 75 this year. Perry set the old record of 74 in 2011-12.

It marks Perry’s second straight appearance on the All-Defensive Team.

Perry is Youngstown State’s Division I scoring leader with 1,956 career points and ranks third on the all-time scoring list. Perry also ranks 12th on the Horizon League all-time scoring list.
