Kingsley Adds Another Postseason Honor

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Senior forward Moses Kingsley picked up another postseason award on Wednesday morning, earning second team All-District honors from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Selected and voted on by member coaches of the NABC in NCAA Division I, Kingsley is the fourth Razorback in the last eight years to earn NABC honors and the first since Bobby Portis and Michael Qualls both landed on the team in 2015.

Kingsley adds the NABC to his list of postseason awards that includes second team All-SEC from the league head coaches, SEC All-Defensive Team and USBWA All-District VII Team honors.

The Abuja, Nigeria, native finished his collegiate career with 1,200 points, good for 25th on Arkansas’ all-time list of leading scorers. He has become one of the most versatile big men to ever wear an Arkansas uniform and stands alone with Razorback legend Oliver Miller as the only players to reach 1,000 points, 600 rebounds and 200 blocks.

Kingsley saved one of his best collegiate games for the 2017 NCAA Tournament, helping Arkansas advance past Seton Hall with 23 points on 10-of-13 shooting to go along with six rebounds and four blocks.

He finished with 24 double-doubles during his four-year career and his 256 blocks are good for the third-most in program history. His 93 blocks as a senior also marks the third-highest total for a single season as a Razorback.
