Espinosa and Sotos Named All-MWC

The Midwest Conference announced the 2018-19 All-MWC Men's basketball Teams on Thursday and Lake Forest College's Sean Espinosa and Danny Sotos were among the honorees.

Espinosa, a sophomore guard who leads the team and ranks fifth in the league with 18.1 points per game, was named First Team All-MWC. He is also second in the conference with 1.8 steals and 34.4 minutes played per game, fifth in assists with 4.2 per contest, sixth in assist-to-turnover ratio at 1.5, and eighth with 2.4 three-pointers made per game. Espinosa has led the Foresters or tied for the team lead in scoring 15 times and his 453 points so far this season are the eighth-highest total in program history.

Sotos earned Second Team All-MWC honors this season, ranking among the top 15 in the conference with 14.5 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. He is also one of the most efficient scorers in the league, ranking seventh in shooting percentage (56.3%) and tied-for-seventh in three-point field goal percentage (43%). Sotos is 10th in school history with 1,319 career points and is one of just five Foresters to score at least 300 points in all four of his years on the team.

Lake Forest finished the 2018-19 regular season at 16-9 overall and in third place in the MWC with a 12-6 record in league play. The team will take on Grinnell College Friday evening at 5:00 in the semifinals of the four-team MWC Tournament at St. Norbert College. St. Norbert will host Monmouth College in the other semifinal with Saturday's final scheduled for 3:00 p.m.

The Foresters have now had at least one player earn some level of All-MWC honors in all but one season since joining the conference in 1974.
