Three players from the Columbia College men’s basketball team were placed on the NAIA Division I All-American squad.

Senior Jordan Dressler was one of 10 players selected to the First Team, while juniors Derrick Dilworth and Devin Griffin received Honorable Mention awards.

Dressler was also the American Midwest Conference player of the year for the second season in a row.

The Cougars won a school-record 35 games and earned its first ever No. 1 national ranking during the 2012-13 season. Columbia went undefeated during the regular season for the first time in program history and won the AMC tournament championship for the second year in a row. The Cougars advanced to the quarterfinals of the national tournament with a record of 35-0 before falling to LSU-Shreveport.
