Dia Named Preseason All-C-USA

In addition to having one of the coolest names in college basketball, SMU’s Papa Dia was selected to the Conference USA Preseason All-Conference second team by the league’s 12 head coaches.

Dia, a 6-9 senior forward, made last year’s all-conference third team after averaging 12.3 points and 8.6 rebounds per game last season.

SMU opens the season at home on Nov. 12 with “Operation Sellout” as the women host Utah at 5:30 p.m. and the men face Arkansas-Little Rock at 8 p.m.
