Five Spartans Earn NABC Honors Court Accolades
YORK, PA – Five York College men's basketball players were named to the 2011-12 NABC (National Association of Basketball Coaches) Honors Court as released by the organization on Wednesday. Seniors Andrew Pawlyk (Bernville, Pa./Tulpehocken) and Mo Oursler (Middletown, Md./Middletown) were joined on the squad by juniors Todd Maciejewski (Red Lion, Pa./Red Lion), Jordan Martz (Hanover, Pa./Hanover) and Chad Styer (Elizabethtown, Pa./Elizabethtown) as the Spartans were the only Capital Athletic Conference men's basketball team to be represented on the list that includes all NCAA divisions.
To earn a spot on the roster, a player must be a varsity player of junior or senior status and earn a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or above for the academic year.
Pawlyk, Oursler, and Maciejewski were each a huge part of the Spartans' Capital Athletic Conference championship run.
Pawlyk played in 27 games, earning a start in 10 of those contests as he averaged 6.0 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. He shot 49.6% from the floor, as he was a Spartan captain for the season.
Oursler played in all 28 games, starting in 27 of those games. He averaged 9.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game. Oursler was one of the top three point shooters in the CAC as he canned 60 three-point field goals for the year. He shot 37.3% from three and 39.2% from the field. Oursler was one of York's top free throw shooters at 78.3%. He was also a Spartan captain in 2011-12.
Maciejewski averaged 8.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. He played in 27 games with 19 of those contests being starts. He shot a blistering 57.1% from the floor while he also led the team in steals with 35.
Martz saw action in five games during the year while Styer was limited to one game due to injury in 2011-12.
Maciejewski, Styer and Martz will return for first-year head coach Matt Hunter who has replaced the retired Jeff Gamber. Gamber concluded his 35-year Spartan career with 493 wins, two CAC tournament championships and five CAC Coach-of-the-Year awards.
Hunter and his Spartans will debut on November 16 at the University of Scranton Tournament in Scranton, PA.
