PROVIDENCE, R.I. (SMU) - SMU men's soccer student-athlete Deshawon Nembhard was named to the American Athletic Conference All-Rookie Team, conference officials announced on Thursday evening.

Nembhard, a freshman back, was the Mustangs' assist leader in 2013 with three. He made an immediate impact on a young back line and was named the conference Rookie of the Week on Sept. 16 after a two-assist performance against Hartwick. Nembhard's third assist came in a 3-1 win over conference foe Cincinnati on Oct. 12.

The Mustangs finished the season with a 3-12-2 overall record, and were 2-4-2 in American action. SMU earned the No. 7-seed in the inaugural conference tournament and fell to then-No. 14, and second seeded, UConn on Nov. 9.
