    CHICAGO - UIC men's basketball player Pat Birt has been selected to the Horizon League's All-Freshman team as voted on by conference coaches, media and sports information directors.  The conference office also released the first-and second-team All-League honorees along with a variety of specialty awards.  See below for a complete listing of award winners.

    "Pat (Birt) has improved tremendously during his first year of college basketball," said UIC Head Coach Howard Moore.  "He has a very high ceiling in this league and I am happy for him that he is getting well-deserved recognition."

    Birt has played in 29 games and started 15 for the Flames this season and is one of UIC's best long-range threats, shooting 39.3 percent from behind the arc.  He ranks as the sixth-highest scoring freshman in the conference with an average of 6.5 points per game, while also sits sixth on the team.  The Plano, Texas native also reached double-digits on seven separate occasions this year, including five times in HL play.

    The ninth-seeded Flames will open first-round Horizon League Tournament action at No. 4 seed Valparaiso on Tuesday at 7 p.m. CT.
