Reed Buck (Lawrenceville, GA) and Nick Sergio (Patchogue, NY) were both named All-Landmark Conference players for the 2012-13 season as voted on by the league's head coaches.  Buck earned a spot on the first-team after leading the conference in scoring, averaging 19.1 points per game.  Sergio claimed a spot on the All-Landmark Conference Second-Team as the top- rebounder on the circuit, pulling down 7.9 rebounds per game.

Buck, who was named the Landmark Conference Player of the Year in 2012, was again a consistent source of offense for the Mariners this season.  The forward reached double figures in scoring in 23-of-26 games and eclipsed the 20-point barrier 12 times.  Buck also obtained a milestone this year as he recorded his 1,000th career point as a Mariner; he finishes his collegiate career with 1,126 career points.

Sergio recorded five double-doubles this season and tallied at least ten rebounds in seven different games.  He was even more dominant on the glass against conference opposition, averaging 9.0 rebounds per game in league contests.  Sergio closed the year shooting 47.7 percent from the field and notching 9.6 points per game.

Catholic's Chris Kearney was named the 2013 Landmark Conference Player and Defensive Player of the Year while Cardinals' head coach Steve Howes and his staff were voted Coaching Staff of the Year.  Susquehanna freshman guard Brandon Headley was tabbed as the league's Rookie of the Year.
