KANSAS CITY, Mo. - - Four Belmont University men's basketball student-athletes were named to the 2012-13 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court Wednesday.
The NABC Honors Court recognizes the highest achieving student-athletes in college basketball, and adds to the lofty tradition of the Belmont men's basketball program.
Rising seniors J.J. Mann (Smyrna, Ga.) and Drew Windler (South Milwaukee, Wisc.) and rising juniors Reece Chamberlain (Goodlettsville, Tenn.) and Holden Mobley (Nashville, Tenn.) represented Belmont on this year's NABC Honors Court.
To qualify for the NABC Honors Court, a student-athlete must:
- Be a junior or senior of academic standing
- Hold a cumulative grade-point average of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2011-12 academic year
- Have matriculated at least one year at their current institution
- Be a member of an NCAA Division I, II, III or NAIA institution
Belmont had four of the five honorees from the Ohio Valley Conference this year. Taylor Jones of Eastern Illinois was the other OVC representative.
13 Bruins have been named to the NABC Honors Court since 2011.
Last month, Belmont men's basketball once again received Public Recognition in the NCAA's annual Academic Progress Rate (APR) report. In fact, Belmont is one of only five institutions in Division I men's basketball to make the Public Recognition List every year since inception in 2006 (Brigham Young, Davidson, Holy Cross and Penn are the other four).
The Bruins also lead the nation in Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-America selections since 2001 with 10.
