By The Mercury

Kansas State junior Brian Rohleder was honored for his academic achievements on Monday, as he selected to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court for the 2013-14 season.

To be eligible for the Honors Court, a student-athlete must be either a junior or senior academically and must boast a cumulative grade-point-average of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2013-14 academic year.

Rohleder was among a record number 895 student-athletes from 335 colleges and universities to earn the distinction, including 14 from the Big 12.

The mechanical engineering major from Wichita has appeared on every Fall and Spring Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll since his freshman season in 2011-12. The current President of K-State Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and current student-athlete representative on the President’s Advisory Committee on Athletics, Rohleder has won the team’s Keith Amerson Academic Award each of the past three years.

Rohleder saw action in 18 games last season, including eight Big 12 contests, scoring two points and grabbing three rebounds in 31 minutes.
