Edwards, Hawkins, and Huskey NABC Honors Court Members

Hollis Edwards, Hank Hawkins and Jarrod Huskey were recognized for their excellence in academics this past year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches, naming them to the Honors Court.

Three members of the Webster University 2013-14 men’s basketball team earned spots on the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court, recognizing their excellence in academics this past year.

Seniors Hollis Edwards and Jarrod Huskey, and junior Hank Hawkins, were all honored by the NABC for 2014. Edwards and Huskey were both four-year players for the Gorloks.

“The work ethic of the players in the classroom, is reflected in their being honored with this award by the NABC,” said head coach Chris Bunch. “Part of the mission of us being an NCAA III member, is to strive for our students to excel on and off the court. It is very satisfying to see their work recognized by the NABC.”

Eligibility for the NABC Honors Court requires a student being a junior or senior academically, and a member of their college’s varsity basketball team. Candidates must have a 3.2 (on a 4.0 scale) or higher cumulative grade point average at the conclusion of the award year, and have attended their institution for at least one year.

The Honors Court extends to all levels of the NCAA (I, II, III) and the NAIA. Nationwide, 895 players from 335 different colleges or universities were recognized in 2014. Webster was one of only two schools in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference with players honored in 2014.
