RICHMOND, Va. - Richmond freshman Kendall Anthony was named the State Men's Basketball Rookie of the Year and was tabbed to the State's All-Rookie Team in voting conducted by the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID).

Anthony was already named the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year and named to the All-Rookie team.

The 5-foot-8 guard from Jackson, Tenn. was second on the Spiders in scoring at 13.0 points per game and his 416 points on the season rank third on Richmond's freshmen scoring list.

The four-time A-10 Rookie of the Week opened his Spider career with a 20-point performance against American - the first Spider to score 20 points in his debut in 50 years - and reached double-figures in 22 of Richmond's 32 contests this season, including four 20-point games.

Anthony shot 42-percent from the field and 42 percent from three. He was an 80-percent foul throw shooter.

Despite graduating 5,737 career points off of back-to-back NCAA Tournament and Top-25 finishing teams, the Spiders finished 16-16 in 2011-12. The Spiders will return their top four scorers, leading scorer Darien Brothers, Anthony, Derrick Williams and Cedrick Lindsay.
