Loyola senior Milton Doyle has been named to the All-MVC First Team as voted by league coaches, sports information directors and media, the conference announced Tuesday.

Doyle, a 6’4″ guard from Chicago, averaged 15.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.5 steals this season, all of which were career highs. Ranking in the league’s top 20 players for usage rate, true shooting percentage, defensive rebounding percentage, assist rate, block rate, steal rate and fouls drawn per 40 minutes in conference games, Doyle had arguably the best all-around season of any player in the Valley.

He is joined on the all-conference team by Illinois State’s Paris Lee, Missouri State’s Alize Johnson, and Wichita State’s Markis McDuffie and Landry Shamet.

Doyle is Loyola’s first-ever All-MVC First Team selection and the program’s first all-league player since Blake Schilb was named to the All-Horizon League team for the 2006-07 season.

He also finished fifth in Player of the Year voting with 25 points while Lee ran away with the award with 110 points.

In other news, junior guard Donte Ingram was named to the All-MVC Second Team, and junior forward Aundre Jackson earned a spot on the All-Newcomer Team.

Loyola, which finished the regular season at 18-13 overall and 8-10 in the MVC, will be the No. 5 seed at Arch Madness this weekend. They face fourth-seeded Southern Illinois in the quarterfinals Friday at 2:30 p.m.
