BARTLESVILLE, Okla.- Following a regular season ending win over Arkansas-Monticello, and heading into their first game of the GAC Tournament against Southeastern Oklahoma, the Ouachita Tigers have received news that they were awarded an All-GAC Selection this year. 

For the second year in a row, Austin Mitchell stands as the only Tiger to receive such an award, as he was named to the All-GAC Second Team. He was also named to the All-GAC Second Team for his play in 2011-12. 

Mitchell finished the year averaging 13.4 points per game, while shooting 44.7 percent from the floor and 43.4 percent from behind the arc. He recorded a team-high free throw percentage of 76 percent while also notching 32 assists, 17 blocks and 20 steals.
