MALIBU, Calif. -- Three seniors on last season's Pepperdine men's basketball team - Taylor Darby, Don Martin and Corbin Moore - were named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches' Honors Court for 2011-12, the organization announced today.
To qualify for the NABC Honors Court, a men's basketball student-athlete must be either a junior or senior, have a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average or better and have previously played at least one full season at the institution.
Darby (San Marcos, Calif./Mission Hills HS), Martin (Gladstone, Mo./Oak Park HS) and Moore (Cypress, Calif./Los Alamitos HS) all graduated this past spring. All three players earned a spot on the NABC Honors Court for the second consecutive season.
Darby, an integrated marketing communications major, was also named a CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District first team selection and a Division I-AAA Athletic Directors Association Scholar-Athlete this season. He led Pepperdine with 12.3 points per game in 2011-12.
Martin, a sports medicine major who was a walk-on, saw the most action of his career as a senior. He appeared in nine of his 13 career games this past season. Martin was named Pepperdine's male co-Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2011-12.
Moore, an economics major, earned All-West Coast Conference honorable mention status after averaging 10.4 points and finishing first on the team and second in the league with 8.6 rebounds per contest.
Darby and Moore were each three-time WCC All-Academic first team selections, the fourth and fifth players in Pepperdine men's basketball history to earn such acclaim.
