CHICAGO - UIC men's basketball starting forward Hayden Humes has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) "Honors Court," the organization announced from its Kansas City-based headquarters. Humes, the Flames' third-leading returning scorer next season, carries a 3.23 cumulative grade-point-average in UIC's Management program.

Humes averaged 8.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game during his first full year at UIC last season. He ranked sixth in the Horizon League in three-point field goal percentage (.418), and recorded 13 double-digit scoring outputs, while leading UIC in rebounding on 17 occasions. Down the stretch of the regular season, Humes' development was particularly noteworthy, when he scored in double figures in seven-of the last nine games, and led the Flames in rebounding in 10-of the final 12 contests.

NABC "Honors Court" members must be academically a junior or senior and a varsity player, carry at least a 3.2 cumulative GPA and have matriculated at least one year at their current institution. Humes transferred to UIC last August after a two-year stint at Toledo - he was granted immediate eligibility with the Flames after earning a legislative relief waiver from the NCAA. Humes will be a junior next season.
