Northwestern State senior center William Mosley, who finished his career as the fifth all-time leading shot blocker in NCAA Division I basketball history, was a first-team selection Wednesday on the National Association of Basketball Coaches’ All-District 23 team, comprised of players from the Southland and Southwestern Athletic conferences.

 Mosley, second on the Demons’ team in 2011-12 with an 11.7 scoring average, led the Southland in rebounding (9.5 per game) and blocked shots (3.9). His 460 career blocks leave him ahead of Alonzo Mourning in fifth place on the NCAA career blocks list.

 The 6-7 Shreveport-Huntington product shot 61 percent from the field as a senior. He finished with a career-best 22 points in a Southland Conference Tournament loss to eventual NCAA Tournament participant Lamar.

 Mosley was joined on the first team by Patrick Richard of McNeese, LaMarcus Reid of Texas-Arlington, Jereal Scott of Stephen F. Austin and Mike James of Lamar. The second team, as voted by NABC members from District 23, included Jeromie Hill of Texas-San Antonio, Anthony Miles from Lamar, Bo Ingram from UTA, and Mississippi Valley State players Terrence Joyner and Paul Crosby.

 The NABC released 24 all-district teams Wednesday. All first-team selections are on the NABC’s All-America ballot with that team to be announced during the Final Four in New Orleans.

 LSU’s Justin Hamilton made the All-District 21 second team. No Conference USA or Sun Belt Conference players from Louisiana made NABC All-District.
