Texas A&M University-Commerce senior Srdan Budimir has been named to the 2018-19 Honors Court by the National Association of Basketball Coaches, as announced this week.

Budimir (Karadjordjevo, Serbia) is an electrical engineering major who completed his basketball eligibility this season. He is the president of Responsible Lions and has been named to the Lone Star Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll four times, Best In Class honor roll twice, Athletics Director’s List twice, President’s List twice and Dean’s List once.

“Srdan had a great career here as a student-athlete who is a fantastic student and basketball player,” said head basketball coach Jaret von Rosenberg.

 “On top of being a part of 46 wins and two NCAA tournament teams in his two seasons, this award demonstrates why he is truly a Best in Class ambassador of our men’s basketball program, Lion Athletics and our tremendous University.”

The NABC Honors Court honors those men’s collegiate basketball student-athletes who excelled in academics during the past season.
