COLUMBIA — The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) named Columbia College's Greg Stegeman, Matt Woodcock and Taylor Evans to the 2010-11 Honors Court.

The NABC Honors Court recognizes the academic success of basketball players. It requires that students be at least juniors who have been enrolled in their university for at least one year and who have a GPA of 3.2 or higher.

Stegeman, from Bonnots Mill, graduated in May with a degree in sports management and also received an NAIA Honorable-Mention All-American award. He averaged 8.4 points and 4.9 rebounds per game for the Cougars this past season. He led the team in field goal percentage and was third in field goal percentage.

Evans, from Belleville, Ill., is majoring in business management and will continue to play with the Cougars this fall. He scored 226 points this season with an average of 7.1 points per game and shot a team-best 79 percent from the charity stripe.

Woodcock, originally from Sale, Australia, just completed his first season with the Cougars and shot 31 percent from the field and 30 percent from beyond the arc.
