(New Orleans)  Dillard University athletics is excited to announce the addition of three student-athletes to the All-GCAC 2013-2014 Preseason team.

Sophomore forwards Jarrain Jenkins, Tyrone Williams, and senior center Jeremy Rixner were selected to represent the Bleu Devils.

Jenkins comes back as the 2013 GCAC Freshman of the Year as well as earning 2013 All-LSWA (Louisiana Sports Writers Association) Honorable Mention and 2013 GCAC All-Tournament team honors.

In last season's 26 games Jenkins had memorable campaign, leading the Bleu Devils in scoring and rebounding by averaging 15.2 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.  With an average of 36 minutes played, he also shot 62 percent from the free throw line.

Rixner, one of two seniors on the current Bleu Devils basketball squad, led the team in blocks per game last season with 1.17 while Williams comes in as part of the 2013 GCAC All-Tournament team.  Last season he finished third on the team in total rebounds.  This season they both look to play more prominent roles on the floor.

Dillard will play its home opener against Belhaven University on November 4 at 7:00 p.m.
