LaRose Selected for NABC Honors Court

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Sacred Heart men's basketball senior Kinnon LaRose of Ogdensburg and junior E.J. Anosike have been selected to the 2018-19 NABC Honors Court, as announced by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Anosike and LaRose both earned a spot on the Honors Court – which recognizes men's collegiate basketball student-athletes who excelled in academics during the past season. 

In order to be named to the NABC Honors Court, a student-athlete must: be either a junior or a senior academically, have a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2018-19 academic year, have matriculated at least one year at their current institution, and be a member of an NCAA Division I, II, III, or NAIA Division I or II institution with a NABC member coach.

LaRose earned a 3.24 GPA as a sports management major in his redshirt-junior season with the Pioneers. On the court last season, LaRose appeared in all 32 games for the Pioneers and averaged 8.1 points and 4.4 rebounds per game, while shooting 37.8% from beyond the arc. LaRose netted a 129.6 offensive rating last season, which led the NEC and ranked 40th in the nation.

Anosike earned a 3.53 GPA last year as a finance and economics major. Anosike shined on the court as well, as he was named the 2018-19 NEC Most Improved Player of the Year and earned All-NEC Second Team honors as also. Anosike started all 32 games for the Pioneers last season and 14.3 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, both career-highs.
