KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Lipscomb men’s basketball team landed a trio of players on the 2017-18 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court Tuesday as Eli Pepper, George Brammeier and Matt Rose each picked up the accolade.
“This is a big honor and we are so proud of these three guys,” Lipscomb head coach Casey Alexander said. “They have been serious and accomplished students since arriving on campus.
“Eli, George and Matt are all great reflections of the student-athletes we want in our program.”
Lipscomb led the ASUN Conference with three of the league’s seven selections. Jacksonville and NJIT each placed two on the list.
The honor was the second straight for Brammeier, who was also named to the Honors Court in 2016-17. He graduated in the spring with a degree in Philosophy after carrying a 4.0 through the 17-18 season.
Pepper posted a 3.66 GPA as a Corporate Management major, while Rose compiled a 3.9 in Finance.
To be eligible for the Honors Court a player must be a junior or senior academically, have a cumulative 3.2 grade-point-average or higher at the end of the 2017-18 school year and must have a year of residency at their institution.
The NABC Honors Court was established in 2007 and is now in its 12th year. For additional information and to see Honors Court recipients from previous years, please visit www.nabc.org.
