   The National Association of Basketball Coaches announced the student-athletes seated on this year’s Honor Court. Columbia College’s senior forward Greg Stegeman was among those recognized for academic excellence.
     The NABC Honors Court selects student-athletes for their talents and abilities on and off the basketball court. To be seated on Honors Court the athlete must have a GPA of 3.2 or higher at the end of the 2009-2010 school year, have junior or senior standing, and they must have gone to their current college for at least a year.
     “I am very honored,” Stegeman said. “I feel that it’s something that not most people can accomplish.”
     “Greg is an outstanding student, an outstanding athlete and a person of great character. He has grown into a leader in our basketball program as well as our athletic department,” said Bob Burchard, Athletics director and men’s basketball coach.
      Stegeman, who has been a valuable player for the Columbia Cougars in past years, will step onto the court this year as a senior. Last year, Stegeman led the Cougars in blocking and rebounding shots.
     Stegeman said that getting back to the National Championship is among his hopes for this season. With that goal in mind, Stegeman and the Columbia Cougars will step onto the court for their first game against Concordia Seminary College in the Southwell Complex at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3.
