KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Montana State senior Harald Frey continued to pick up recognition for his performance during the 2019-20 men's basketball season as he was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches' District 6 Second Team on Monday, March 23. The 2019-20 NABC Division I All-District teams and coaches were selected and voted on by member coaches of the NABC in NCAA Division I.
Frey became the program's record holder in consecutive games played and started with 127 during MSU's Senior Day game versus Northern Colorado on March 7. The Oslo, Norway, native completed his fourth season in Blue and Gold third among all-time Bobcats in points (1,890) and second in assists (514), free throws made (456) and 3-pointers (270). He finished 12th on the Big Sky's all-time scoring list and seventh in assists.
He served as MSU's leader in several categories during his senior season. His 159 free throws were the third most in a single season and his 87.4% clip from the line was the fifth best mark. He narrowly finished outside MSU's top five in marks by a senior in points (516), steals (46), assists (142) and 3-pointers (61). He played in at least 35 minutes in 26 of 31 contests this season. He ranked 46th in the nation playing 36 minutes per game.
Frey scored a career-high 37 points at Montana on Feb. 1. In that game, his point output tied for 13th most in a single game in program history, his seven 3-pointers tied for seventh in a single game and his 12 free throws tied for fifth most all-time. He topped his previous career high of 34 points he set in the season opener at nationally ranked Utah State on Nov. 5. He had seven 30-point efforts over the course of his collegiate career.
Frey joined Tyler Hall as recent Bobcats to be honored by the NABC. Hall was named to the NABC District 6 Second Team on two occasions. The NABC District 6 team included from the Big Sky First Team honorees Sayeed Pridgett (Montana), Mason Peatling (Eastern Washington) and Jonah Radebaugh (Northern Colorado), along with Second Team selections Jerrick Harding (Weber State) and Jacob Davison (Eastern Washington).
