WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Rising senior Shane Reybold of UNCW has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court after turning in an excellent academic year in the classroom.

The Laurel, Md., forward was one of 700 student-athletes from 285 colleges and universities recognized on Tuesday for their work by the NABC. The honor was presented to junior or senior players who registered a minimum grade point average of 3.20 in 2012-13.

“Shane first joined our team as a walk-on and has been a wonderful ambassador and example for our program,” said Buzz Peterson, UNCW’s fourth-year coach. “He works hard every day in practice and is a dedicated student in the classroom as well.”

Reybold is majoring in Exercise Science and hopes to enter Physical Therapy school after graduating from UNCW.
