KANSAS CITY, Mo. - University of Memphis' Chris Douglas-Roberts and Jeremy Hunt have been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 7 team, the organization announced Wednesday. Douglas-Roberts earned NABC All-District 7 first team honors, while Hunt was selected to the district's second team.

It is the second-straight year that two Tigers were named to the NABC All-District squad. Last year, Rodney Carney and Darius Washington Jr. received NABC district recognition.

Douglas-Roberts, who was named the Conference USA Player of the Week on Feb. 26, is the team's leading scorer with a 15.1 scoring average. He ranks sixth in Conference USA in scoring and fifth in field goal percentage (.540). The Detroit, Mich., native has netted double figures in 21 of his 26 games, and has posted six 20-point performances. Earlier this season, the 6-foot-6 guard scored a career-high 28 points versus Austin Peay.

Hunt is the Tigers' second-leading scorer with a 13.9 scoring average and is ranked 10th in Conference USA in scoring. He also ranks fifth in three-point field goal percentage (.413). In Memphis' win over Rice Feb. 22, Hunt scored the 1,000th point of his career and became the 42nd player in Tiger basketball history to reach the milestone. In early February, the Memphis, Tenn., native netted a career-high 30 points in the Tigers' victory over UAB. In that game, Hunt tied a school record with seven three-pointers.

Joining Douglas-Roberts on the NABC All-District 7 first team were Western Kentucky's Courtney Lee, Tennessee's Chris Lofton, Vanderbilt's Derrick Byars and Kentucky's Randolph Morris. On the district's second team, Hunt was joined by Austin Peay's Drake Reed, Louisville's Terrence Williams, Kentucky's Joe Crawford and Vanderbilt's Shan Foster.
