MSU's Scheer Named to NABC Honors Court

Missouri State men's basketball veteran Nathan Scheer is part of the 2012-13 National Association of Basketball Coaches Honors Court. The NABC Honors Court recognizes the talents of the 700-plus collegiate basketball student-athletes from 287 colleges and universities who excelled in academics during the past season. In order to be named to the Honors Court, an athlete must be a junior or senior, possess a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2012-13 academic year, have matriculated at least one year at their current institution, and played at a NCAA Division I, II, III, or NAIA member institution. Scheer, a Construction Management major with a 3.78 grade-point average, was named to the Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete first team as well as the MVC All-Bench Team in 2013. He provided 22.5 minutes per game during his junior season for the Bears and knocked down 37 3-pointers. He was named MVC Scholar-Athlete of the Week on Jan. 3 and finished seventh in the conference by making 42.9 percent of his 3-point shots in league play. Scheer earned MVC second-team academic honors as a sophomore. Including Scheer, Coach Paul Lusk's Bears will return eight lettermen and four starters this winter. MSU will also welcome five newcomers this season, including three freshmen and a pair of transfers.

Early Tuesday morning, U.S. fighter jets, armed Predator and Reaper drones, and Navy ships launched airstrike attacks against ISIS, deep within Syria. While it is ironic that it was about a year ago at this time that President Obama was seriously considering strikes against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, sometimes threats emerge even greater than the last.
