KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Three members of the Case Western Reserve University men's basketball team were named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court, which recognizes collegiate student-athletes who excelled in academics during the 2010-11 season.
Representing CWRU was recently graduated center Eric Duerr (Gibsonia, Pa./Pine-Richland), forward Alex Hildebrandt (Akron, Ohio/St. Vincent St. Mary) and guard Ryan Bokan (Boise, Idaho/Bishop Kelly).
Duerr, a biology major, averaged 7.0 points and 5.2 rebounds while totaling a team-high 29 blocked shots. His 60 offensive rebounds were also the best in the University Athletic Association during the regular season. During the spring, Duerr was named a Capital One Academic All-American for the second straight season.
Hildebrandt, a management major, lettered all four seasons at CWRU and averaged 3.3 points and 3.1 rebounds as a senior. Bokan, a two-year letterwinner and biomedical engineering major, played in 15 games as a senior after missing his junior campaign due to injury.
To qualify for the NABC Honors Court, players must be a junior or senior academically, possess a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.20, and have matriculated at least one year at their NCAA Division I, II, or III, or NAIA institution.
