NGU BASKETBALL PLAYERS EARN ACADEMIC HONORS FROM NABC

Tigerville, SC – Three North Greenville University basketball players, Kyler Booher (SR/Grad History), Jason Wray (SR/Biology), and Luke Lattimer  (SR/Sport Management)  have been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court, which recognizes excellence in academics.

The NABC Honors Court recognizes the talents and gifts the players possess off the court, and the hard work they exhibit in the classroom.  To be named to the Honors Court, players must be a junior or senior, have a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 at the end of the 2010-2011 year, and must have been at their current institution one year.

Booher, who graduated in May, had a perfect 4.0 grade point average and earned his second NABC designation.  He was the lone senior on Coach Chad Lister’s squad, which went a school record 22-7 and reached the National Christian Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCCAA) South Regional championship game.  Wray posted a 3.7 gpa in his difficult biology major and also was selected for the second time.   Lattimer had a 3.4 in sport management.

North Greenville, which is now an official member of Conference Carolinas, had the highest number of basketball players from their new league to be recognized as Honors Court scholars.
