Nate Montgomery, West Region Player of the Year, will be in Salem, Va., to play in the NABC D-III All-Star Game.

The 2009-10 All-Region teams have been released.

Players were nominated for these awards by the Sports Information Directors at the various schools, who were contacted multiple times as the season wound down to remind them to make their players eligible. There were 676 players nominated nationwide, a new high. The ballot was then made available to SIDs, who voted for 10 players in their region. SIDs voted for six frontcourt players and four backcourt players, to ensure balance.

The regional Rookie of the Year award has returned for a third season as well, honoring the top freshman in each region, while also names a regional Coach of the Year.

Regions that have fewer than 40 Division III teams have two teams, while all other regions have three teams.
