Shrewsbury earns NABC Honors Court recognition

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Former Concord University men’s basketball player Gentry Shrewsbury (Pineville/Wyoming East HS) was named to the 2012-13 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court Wednesday for his standout performance both athletically and academically last season.

In order to be named to the NABC Honors Court, a student-athlete must have met a high standard of academic criteria. The qualifications include holding at least a 3.2 cumulative grade point average (GPA) as well as being declared a junior or senior academically by their institution.

Shrewsbury, a secondary education major, held a 3.72 GPA and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Concord in May. A two-time West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll selection, Shrewsbury was also named Concord’s male College Foundation of West Virginia (CFWV) Senior Scholar-Athlete by the WVIAC in March.

On the court, Shrewsbury started 14 of 27 games played as a senior in 2012-13. For the year,  he averaged 3.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game while shooting 56 percent (28-of-50) from the field.

For his career, he played in 110 games at Concord, making 56 starts and ending his collegiate career with a field goal percentage of 51.1 percent (189-of-370).

He helped lead Concord to a 33-23 overall record and a 25-20 mark in WVIAC play over his final two years.

Shrewsbury was one of just two players, along with Ohio Valley’s Mustafa Helal, to be named to the NABC Honors Court out of the former West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
