(Leavenworth, Kan.)—Two University of Saint Mary Spires Men’s Basketball players have won distinction from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) for their strong academic performance over the 2012-2013 season.

JEB Greenberg, a guard from Leavenworth, Kan., and Marc McGrory, a center out of Columbia, S.C., were key parts of a Spires team that won the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference regular season title and advanced to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Division II national tournament.

To qualify for the NABC Honors Court, student athletes must have had a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2012-13 academic year.

“I’m proud of both JEB and Marc for being named to the 2013 NABC Honors Court. It shows how committed both of them have been on as well as off the court during their basketball careers here at Saint Mary,” said Spires Head Men’s Basketball Coach Jon Bishop.

“We strive for our players to be excellent in everything they do and these two guys are great examples of that.”

Both Greenberg and McGrory were seniors during the 2012-2013 season, and both earned their bachelor’s degrees from Saint Mary in May.

Saint Mary has 12 varsity sports programs—football, volleyball, baseball, softball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, cross country, and track & field—along with co-ed cheerleading and dance. Visit www.gospires.com to learn more about USM athletics.
