Iegorov was in double digits in both rebounds and scoring in all five of the WolfPack’s playoff games.

When he learned of his selection to the first-all-star team, Thompson Rivers head coach Scott Clark stated. “His selection was well deserved. Vlad has put in countless hours in the weight room and on the court. It’s great to see his efforts are being rewarded.”

Iegorov played out his USport eligibility this season.  He will return to TRU in the fall to complete his Master’s degree and hopes to stay in Canada.
