CHARLOTTE, N.C. - UNC Asheville senior guards Matt Dickey and J.P. Primm made the North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association (NCCSIA) 2011-12 University Division All-State Men's Basketball Team. The announcement was made on Tuesday. 

Nominees were submitted by North Carolina sports information professionals.  NCCSIA members voted for the all-state teams.  Teams are selected for men and women in both the college and university (NCAA Division I) divisions.

Ten players representing eight different North Carolina Universities were named to the 2011-12 NCCSIA University Division All-State Teams.  The entire five-man first team consisted of senior student-athletes.

Dickey, who averaged 16.1 points to lead the Bulldogs to the Big South Conference regular-season and tournament titles, led all vote-getters.  He was joined on the first team by teammate J.P. Primm, High Point's Nick Barbour, Campbell's Eric Griffin and North Carolina Central's Dominique Sutton.

Primm, a senior guard from Dickson, Tenn., was the Big South Tournament MVP after leading the Bulldogs to the title.  A second-team all-Big South performer, Primm averaged 15.4 points, 3.3 rebounds and a team-high 4.2 assists and 1.8 steals.  He retired as Asheville's all-time leader in both assists (607) and steals (244) and was fifth all-time in scoring with 1,689 career points.

Founded in 2002, The North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association (NCCSIA) is comprised of sports information professionals from NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA and independent institutions from the state of North Carolina.  The purpose of the organization is to promote collegiate athletics at all schools.  Membership is open to anyone affiliated with a college, university or conference located in North Carolina, and whose area of responsibility lies within sports information.
