David Langan Named Graduate Assistant Coach at Wesley College

Wesley College head men’s basketball coach Dean Burrows is proud to announce that former Wolverine All-American center, David Langan, will be returning to his alma mater as a Graduate Assistant for the 2016-2017 season.

Langan, a native of Sayreville, NJ, received his B.S. in Physical Education (K-12) from Wesley in May of 2015. The Wesley College men’s basketball record book has Langan’s thumb prints all over it. David is ninth all-time in points scored with 1,100, first in career rebounds with 831, and third in career blocks with 124.

Langan is the only player in Wesley’s NCAA Division III era to have played on three NCAA Division III Men’s Basketball tournament teams. Heading into the fourth game of his senior campaign, Langan had made 22 straight shots from the field and would go on to make his first shot attempt atHampden-Sydney but would miss his second, leaving him one field goal shy of tying the NCAA Division III record for consecutive made field goals (which is still held by Mount Union’s Todd Richards dating back to the 2000 season).

For all of his hard work, perseverance, and determination, Langan was named first team All-CAC during his Junior and Senior seasons. He took home the conference’s Player of the Year award as a senior after averaging 16.8 points per game to go along with 10.9 rebounds per game while shooting 62.6% from the floor in leading his team to a program best 23 wins on the season. In addition to the team accomplishments and program firsts achieved during the 2013-2014 season, Langan also took home numerous individual awards & accolades for his play.

David was named D3hoops.com All-America Third Team, DIII News Fifth Team All-American, NABC Reese’s Division III All-Star Game, NABC All-Mid Atlantic First Team, and D3Hoops.com All-Mid Atlantic First Team. Langan was named to the Capital Athletic Conference’s “Silver Anniversary” Team in November of 2014. David was one of three former Wolverines to garner this honor.
