Niemczyk, who graduated from Bell City High School, also received the honor last year. He was one of nine players from Ohio Valley Conference institutions to be honored.
A player must be a junior or senior with a cumulative grade-point average of 3.2 or better and have spent at least one year at his or her current institution.
Niemczyk, a senior, started 20 games for the Redhawks last season. He averaged 9.2 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. He made 46 of his 125 3-pointers.
