Hendrix College men's basketball players Jaren Riley and Colton Primm were named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Honors Court on Wednesday. The Honors Court recognizes men's collegiate basketball student-athletes who excelled in academics during the 2012-13 season, the talents and gifts that these men possess off the court, and the hard work they exhibit in the classroom.
To be named to the Honors Court, the student-athlete must have a 3.2 or higher grade point average at the conclusion of the 2012-13 academic year and must be a junior or senior.

He led the Warriors and was fifth in the SAA in scoring with 13.4 points per game and he was second in the conference with 8.1 rebounds per contest. Primm also ranked third in the league with 1.1 blocks per game and was selected to the All-SAA First Team.
