It may have been a disappointing year on the court as the St. Ambrose men's basketball team finished 10-20, but the work in the classroom did pay off for two Fighting Bees who were recognized for their academic work.

Seniors Justin Blondell and Andy Supergan were both named 2012-13 Daktronics-NAIA Division II Men's Basketball Scholar-Athletes by the NAIA.

To earn scholar-athlete honors, individuals must maintain a minimum 3.5 GPA and have achieved junior academic status.

Blondell, a Moline product, is majoring in accounting. Supergan, from Marseilles, Ill., is majoring in political science.

Through the spring athletics season, 27 SAU student-athletes have been honored as NAIA Scholar-Athletes.
