CHICAGO - For the second-straight year, UIC men's basketball 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' leading returning scorer next season, graduated with a 3.21 cumulative grade-point-average in UIC's Management program in May. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

The NABC Honors Court awards college basketball players who excelled in academics during the 2012-13 season. The NABC Honors Court also recognizes the talents and gifts that the student-athletes possess off the court, and the hard work they exhibit in the classroom.

Humes averaged 10.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game in leading UIC to its first postseason berth since 2004. He ranked seventh in the Horizon League in both field goal percentage (.473) and three-point field goal percentage (.400), and 10th overall in minutes played (33.2 mpg).

The senior-to-be scored 15 or more points eight times, and corralled at least eight rebounds in seven individual games. Humes, who transferred to UIC from Toledo prior to the 2011-12 campaign, enters his senior season with 781 career points at the Division I level.

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.
