UGA’s Connor O’Neill has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Honors Court. The accolade recognizes men’s basketball student-athletes who excelled in academics during the past season.
To be eligible, players must be a junior or senior academically with a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher. They also have to have attended their current university for at least one year.
O’Neill is one of just five Southeastern Conference players and five Division I players from schools in Georgia to receive the honor for the 2017-2018 season.
A 6-foot-6, 220-pound forward from Roswell, O’Neill is majoring finance in UGA’s Terry College of Business. He played in three games last season, averaging 0.3 points and 1.3 rebounds per game. O’Neill has been chosen as the male student-athlete representative for the UGA Athletic Board for the 2018-2019 academic year.
