VALDOSTA — Valdosta State men’s basketball player Josh Sparks has been named to the Daktronics All-South Region team.

Sparks was named to the South Region’s second team after averaging 13.5 points and 9.1 rebounds a game during the 2012-13 season. He also recorded a Valdosta State single season record 100 blocked shots on the year, and had 34 steals and 47 assists to go along with 392 points and 264 rebounds.

Sparks tallied seven double-doubles and one triple-double on the season. He was particularly dominant during VSU’s run to the Gulf South Conference Tournament championship game, as he recorded double-doubles in all three of VSU’s tournament games and earned All-Tournament honors after averaging 21.0 points and 11.7 rebounds per game.

The Savannah native ended his Blazer career as the school record holder in blocked shots with 246 in his career, a number that placed him second in the GSC record books.
