Nashville, Tenn. – Tennessee State University men’s basketball student-athlete Chris Conner was honored on Wednesday as part of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court.

Academically, the Maryland Eastern Shore transfer posted a 3.39 GPA during his undergraduate career.  Conner boasted one of the highest GPAs of Kappa Alpha Psi Graduates in his province. He recently earned the Brother of the Year award for his community service and leadership.

“I am very excited for this young man,” said TSU men’s basketball head coach Travis Williams. “That proves our program is moving into the right direction academically and athletically. Being named to the NABC Honors Court is one of the highest academic honors you can achieve as a basketball student-athlete. I am proud of Chris Conner for this outstanding accomplishment.”

The honors court recognizes collegiate basketball student-athletes who excel in academics during the 2011-12 season. The NABC Honors Court recognizes the talents and gifts these men possess off the court and the hard work they exhibit in the class room.
