COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - University of Colorado Colorado Springs sophomore guard Darius Pardner earned a spot on the 2012-13 RMAC Men's Basketball All-Academic Teams announced this afternoon. Colin Campbell, Kyle Clark and Alex Koehler each earned a spot on the Honor Roll.

Pardner is the first Mountain Lion on the first or second teams since Brent Jones earned a spot on the first team in the 2010-11 season. Pardner earned a 3.42 grade point average in organization and strategic communications before the start of the season and is second on the team with 11.4 points per game. He has scored at least 10 points in the last five games and is shooting 65 percent from the field during the last four games.

Campbell has made three appearances this season in a reserve role for the Mountain Lions with a 3.30 grade point average in business. Clark ranks among the RMAC leaders with seven blocked shots this season with a 3.50 GPA in history, while Koehler is averaging 6.4 points and 5.9 rebounds in a starting role with a 3.34 GPA in sports management.

To qualify, a student-athlete needs a 3.30 cumulative grade point average in at least two consecutive semesters of attendance at UCCS. The first and second teams were selected by the Sports Information Directors at the RMAC institutions.
