The Atlantic-10 announced all conference honors Tuesday afternoon. Five VCU players made the list in the Ram’s inaugural season in the conference.

Briante Weber, who led the nation in steal percentage and led the conference in steals despite only playing 20.8 minutes per game, was named the A-10 Defensive Player of the Year. Juvonte Reddic and Treveon Graham both earned spots on the second team. At least one of the pair was expected to make the first team, but four guards (Wyatt, Galloway, Clarke, and Williams) earned spots. Senior Darius Theus joins Briante Weber on the all-defensive team. He ranks 3rd nationally in steal percentage and third in the conference in steals. After a slow start to the season, Melvin Johnson had a great February which earned him a spot on the all-rookie team.

Senior Darius Theus is the only graduating Ram on the list. Junior Juvonte Reddic, junior Treveon Graham, sophomore Briante Weber, and freshman Melvin Johnson should all return to VCU next season. See the full list of A-10 award winners below.
