KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Catholic University of America senior standout Louis Khouri continues to rack up the academic accolades as he was recognized by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) as part of the 2016-17 Honors Court.
The NABC Honors Court recognizes the talents and gifts that these men possess off the court and the hard work they exhibit in the classroom. In order to be named to the Honors Court, a student-athlete must meet a high standard of academic criteria. The qualifications are as follows:
1. Academically a junior or senior and a varsity player.
2. Cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2016-17 academic year.
3. Students must have matriculated at least one year at their current institution.
4. Member of a NCAA Division I, II, III, or NAIA Division I or II institution with a NABC member coach.
Khouri, one of just 15 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, is a four-year member of the Catholic men's basketball program and boasts a 3.76 grade point average in electrical engineering.
A guard from Alexandria, Va., Khouri ranked second on the team with 15.8 points per game and 5.4 rebounds. Those marks are good for eighth and ninth, respectively, in the Landmark Conference. A true sharpshooter, he ranks third in the league with 2.7 3-pointers per game and boasts an 86.7 free throw percentage, the top mark in the Landmark.
Khouri has twice been honored as the Landmark Athlete of the Week and is a two-time Academic Honor Roll selection, as well as a Landmark Champion last season.
