CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Nov. 8, 2016) – Caltech men's basketball senior Nasser Al-Rayes (Doha, Qatar / American School of Doha) has been named preseason All-America Honorable Mention by the Sporting News.

The 6-10 Al-Rayes earned Second Team All-SCIAC honors last season, in which he averaged a team-high 11.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and program-record 2.6 blocks per game, ranking 16th in the nation.  He also became just the second player in program history to garner CoSIDA Academic All-District recognition.

Al-Rayes and the rest of the Beavers opened 2016-17 with an exhibition game at Division I Long Beach State and will face another DI opponent in Cal State Fullerton on Friday, Nov. 11 before the regular season begins with the third edition of the 110 Rivalry in which Caltech hosts Occidental College on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m.
