KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Forward Joe Henain, recent Mount Saint Mary College graduate and four-year member of the Knights men’s basketball team, was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) 2013-14 Honors Court, recognizing those men’s collegiate basketball student-athletes who excelled in academics during the past season. 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.
Henain was honored by the NABC in 2012-13 by being selected to the Inaugural Allstate NABC Good Works Team, which recognized him as a student-athlete who has made outstanding contributions in the areas of volunteerism and civic involvement. This is also his second straight year as a member of the NABC Honors Court. A biology and pre-med major, Henain has excelled both on the court and in the classroom in his four-year tenure at the Mount. His hard work and dedication has led him to his acceptance and enrollment to Albany Medical College.
"Joe has always been the epitome of what a student-athlete should be," said men’s basketball head coach Ryan Kadlubowski. "I expect only great things from him in the future and know he will excel in whatever path he chooses to take."
A record number 894 student-athletes from 338 colleges and universities earned NABC Honors Court distinction.
In order to be named to the Honors Court, a student-athlete must meet a high standard of academic criteria.
