Six From Big 12 Named To NABC Honors Court
July 11, 2012
Six Big 12 men's basketball players have been selected to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Honors Court, the NABC announced. The honor recognizes collegiate basketball student-athletes who excelled in academics during the 2011-12 season.

Baylor's Jacob Neubert, Jordan Juenemann of Kansas, Victor Ojeleye of Kansas State and J'Covan Brown, Andrew Dick and Dean Melchionni of Texas were all chosen. In order to be named to the Honors Court, a student-athlete must meet a high standard of academic criteria that includes:

1. Academically a junior or senior and a varsity player.
2. Cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2011-12 academic year.
3. Students must have matriculated at least one year at their current institution.
4. Member of an NCAA Division I, II, III or NAIA institution.

The NABC was founded in 1927 by Phog Allen, the legendary basketball coach at the University of Kansas. The NABC currently has nearly 5,000 members consisting primarily of university and college men's basketball coaches. All NABC members are expected to uphold the four core values of being a Guardian of the Game (advocacy, leadership, service and education) by bringing attention to the positive aspects of the sport of basketball and the role coaches play in the academic and athletic lives of today's student-athletes.
