ROCK ISLAND, Ill.—Senior captains Troy Rorer (Bettendorf HS, Bettendorf, Iowa) and Bryant Voiles (Byron HS, Byron, Ill.) have been chosen as Co-Most Valuable Players for the 2011-12 Augustana men’s basketball team. Rorer was also selected as the Best Defensive Player for the 19-7 Vikings, while Voiles added Best Rebounder honors.

The 6’ 9” Voiles, who was also Augustana’s MVP a year ago, led the Vikings in scoring as well as rebounding this year. He averaged 14.2 points and 7.2 boards per game and was the team's top free throw shooter at .830 (117 of 141). In addition, he tied for the team lead with 36 three-point field goals. He finished his career at Augustana with 881 points and 460 rebounds, ranking 36th and 25th respectively on the school's career lists. His 112 career three-point field goals are 10th-best in school history as are his 48 blocked shots. He ranks 16th in career three-point percentage (.385), free throws made (237) and free throws attempted (315) and is in the top 50 in games played (84), free throw percentage (.752) and assists (131) as well.

In addition to earning Co-MVP honors, Rorer is a repeat selection as the Vikings’ top defender. The 6’ 2” guard led the team in minutes played (741) and was second on the team in scoring (11.2 ppg), assists (66) and steals (25) this season. He also averaged 4.1 rebounds per game and finished his career ranking in the school's top 50 in games played (88), assists (188), steals (83), three-pointers (48), free throw attempts (251), blocked shots (18), rebounds (331) and made free throws (147).

Both Voiles and Rorer were second team All-CCIW selections this year. Voiles repeated as a second team pick.
