KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Baylor men’s basketball junior forward Jacob Neubert was named to the 2011-12 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court, the organization announced Tuesday.
Neubert, a two-year veteran on head coach Scott Drew’s squad, is a four-time Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll selection. The 6-foot-5 walk-on forward scored two points and grabbed four rebounds in nine games off the bench during Baylor’s 2012 Elite Eight season. The Waco, Texas, native is the first Baylor player to be named to the NABC Honors Court since Mark Shepherd in 2008.
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. In order to be named to the Honors Court, an athlete must meet a high standard of academic criteria, including the following qualifications:
1. Academically a junior or senior and a varsity player;
2. Cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2011-12 academic year;
3. Students must have matriculated at least one year at their current institution;
4. Member of an NCAA Division I, II, III or NAIA institution.
Neubert was one of five Big 12 student-athletes named to the NABC Honors Court, joining Jordan Juenemann (Kansas), J’Covan Brown (Texas), Andrew Dick (Texas) and Dean Melchionni (Texas).
