LEXINGTON, Va. – VMI senior guard QJ Peterson (Hedgesville, W.Va.) was named to both All-Southern Conference postseason basketball squads as announced by the league office in Spartanburg, South Carolina on Wednesday.

Peterson was named first team All-SoCon as selected by the league media and was a second team selection on the coaches voting.

It marked the second straight year that Peterson had landed first team honors on the media All-Conference squad.

Peterson leads the SoCon in scoring with a 19.4 per game average. Earlier this season, he became the sixth player to surpass the career 2,000 point mark and now has 2,174 for the #4 spot on VMI all-time list.
