Spencer is reaping his first-ever postseason honor with his selection to the second team.  Playing in 25 contests with 23 starts, the 5-11 guard paced the team in scoring (10.8 points per game), three-point shooting, free throw percentage, and assists.  Spencer ranks second in the league in assist-to-turnover ratio with 1.5, third in free throw percentage with 82.5%, fifth in three-point field goals made with 53, sixth in assists with 66 and ninth in three-point field goal percentage with 35.6%.
