Travis Clower and Christian Hansen were honored by the NABC.

EMU men's basketball seniors, Travis Clower of Romney and Christian Hansen of Manassas Park, Va., have been named to the 2018-19 NABC Honors Court by The National Association of Basketball Coaches recognized as men's collegiate basketball student-athletes who excelled in academics during the past season.

To meet the criteria for the Honors Court a student-athlete must be a junior or senior with a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher at the end of the academic year.

Clower graduated with a degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Science playing in 100 games over his career. He averaged a career high 13.2 points per game in his senior season, and was among ODAC leaders in three pointers and free throws. For his career, Travis has made more than 43% of his three pointers.

Hansen graduated majoring in Psychology, playing in 46 games over his first two seasons. After an injury caused him to miss the 2016-17 season, he was able to play in 19 games over his final two years to finish with 243 points scored in his career.

The basketball men finished the 2018-19 campaign with a 10-16 record and a near upset in the first round of the ODAC Tournament. The Royals look to new faces next season after graduating a class of eight seniors. o
