STANFORD, Calif.- Seniors Jack Trotter and Andrew Zimmermann were recently selected to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court.
Trotter, who posted 3.73 GPA, graduated in June with a bachelor's degree in Economics and Masters in Management Science and Engineering. A three-time Pac-12 All-Academic honoree, Trotter also was named the recipient of the Stanford Alumni Association's 2012 J.E. Wallace Sterling Award, recognizing his dedicated involvement in volunteer and leadership activities through service to Stanford.
Zimmermann, who attained a 3.23 GPA, also graduated in June with a bachelor's degree in Biology. Zimmermann was named to this year's Pac-12 All-Academic Second Team while garnering honorable mention accolades as a junior.
The NABC Honors Court recognizes the talents of the student-athletes off the court, and the hard work they exhibit in the classroom. In order to be named to the Honors Court, a student-athlete must meet a high standard of academic criteria. The qualifications are as follows:
1. Academically a junior or senior and a varsity player.
2. Cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2011-12 academic year.
3. Students must have matriculated at least one year at their current institution.
4. Member of an NCAA Division I, II, III, or NAIA Institution.
Stanford (26-11, 10-8 Pac-12) captured its third championship in school history in 2011-12, closing out the year as Postseason NIT champions. Appearing in the postseason for the first time in three years, the Cardinal chalked up its best win total since a 28-8 campaign in 2007-08. Despite placing seventh in regular-season conference play, Stanford wrapped up the year as the Pac-12's winningest program and tallied a league-best four victories against the RPI's top-50.
