The Basketball Times released today their 2020-21 preseason Top-20 rankings and All-Americans at the Division II level. The Northern State men landed at No. 10, with Wolves junior forward, Parker Fox being named to the preseason All-American list.
Northern went 26-6 overall, prior to the early dismissal of the 2019-20 season due to COVID-19. The Wolves are the highest ranked NSIC member, joined by No. 13 Augustana and No. 19 Sioux Falls. In addition, regionally foe Northwest Missouri State sits atop the preseason list.
Fox is one of 24 student-athletes named to the preseason All-America list. The junior averaged 19.9 points and 8.8 rebounds per game last season. He was honored as the NSIC Defensive Player of the Year and the NSIC/Sanford Health Basketball Tournament MVP, in addition to being named to the NSIC All-Conference first team, D2CCA All-Region second team, and NABC All-Region second team.
