Wright State senior men’s basketball player Kendall Griffin has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches 2013-14 Honors Court.
"Kendall is the first player I offered a scholarship to when I became head coach four years ago,” WSU head coach Billy Donlon said. “Wright State University, our community and our basketball family have been extremely fortunate to have this special young man be a part of our lives. His maturity, work ethic, commitment to family and selfless persona is second to none. He comes from an amazing family, and we are all so happy to celebrate this achievement together.”
Griffin, a 6-4 guard from Avon, Indiana, is majoring in biomedical engineering. He missed the second half of the season with an injury but played in 23 games, averaging 5.1 points per game. Griffin tied his career-high 15 points at Georgetown and has played in 84 games over the last three seasons for the Raiders. WSU will return four seniors from its 21-win team that advanced to the Horizon League Championship game.
