The University of the Cumberlands (UC) Men's Basketball team is readying themselves for their first round contest in the 2014 Mid-South Conference (MSC) Basketball Championship Tournament against Campbellsville. As they finish preparation for the tournament, the conference office announced on Wednesday that 18 student athletes from the conference earned Academic All-Conference honors.
The Patriots had the 2nd most members of this stellar group of student-athletes with 2. In order to be nominated by an institution, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.25 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved at least sophomore academic status.
The members of the Patriot basketball team earning this honor were junior Chance Armstrong (Mt. Washington, KY) and sophomore Karon Pratt (Bahamas).
The Patriots will carry the #3 seed into the 2014 Mid-South Conference tournament Thursday as they will take on #6 seeded Campbellsville University (14-14, 9-9 MSC). This game will tip at 9:00 pm eastern time from Lebanon, TN at Cumberland University.
