Anchorage’s Travis Thompson isn’t just a shooter.

He’s got a little grind to his game too.

The 6-foot-1 guard was named second-team all-conference and first-team all-defense for the Fraport Skyliners of Frankfurt, Germany.

Thompson, of Dimond High fame, led his team in scoring at 19.2 points in 17 games. He added 4.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists.

He made a team-high 62 3-pointers and his .431 shooting clip was 11 percentage points higher than the team average.

The Fraport Skyliners compete in the Bundesliga Pro B division and lost in the first round of the playoffs to top seed Bernau.
