Three Men's Basketball Student-Athletes Named to 2012-13 NABC Honors Court
Eckerd College men's basketball student-athletes Woody Taylor '13, Alex Bodney '14 and Dino Tabakovic '15 were each honored as members of the 2012-13 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court.
(L-R): Woody Taylor, Alex Bodney and Dino Tabakovic, all carried GPA's over 3.2 at the conclusion of the 2012-13 academic year
This year, the NABC honored over 700 student-athletes from more than 285 colleges/universities spanning the NCAA Div. I, II, III, and NAIA Div. I and II levels.
Eligible recipients needed to be junior or senior in status on the varsity roster, maintain at least a 3.2 cumulative GPA at the end of the 2012-13 academic year and matriculated at least one year at their current institution.
"I'm very proud of this academic accomplishment for a group of our guys," said EC Head Coach Tom Ryan. "To be able to balance their work in the classroom and their strong performance on the court is very commendable."
The NABC Honors Court recognizes the talents and gifts that these men possess off the court, and the hard work they exhibit in the classroom.
Taylor is a repeat selection while Bodney and Tabakovic were both tabbed in their first year of eligibility for the NABC Honors Court.
Taylor graduated with his degree in international business and communications while Bodney is majoring in business administration and Tabakovic is studying international business.
