BIRMINGHAM, AL - In a continuing effort to recognize the accomplishments of student-athletes beyond the field of competition, the SEC once again highlighted a Community Service Team for men's basketball for the 2012-13 season.

This marks the 15th year for the SEC Community Service Team for men's basketball as well as for women's basketball. All 20 league-sponsored sports have had a Community Service Team since 2004, with at-large teams for men's and women's sports being chosen from 1999-2003. The SEC began this concept with a football Community Service Team in 1994.

The senior forward from Memphis, Tennessee has been a consistent member of Missouri Basketball's community relations efforts over the last five years volunteering for events such as: MU Children's Hospital patient visits, MU Children's Hospital charitable fundraisers , Elementary school read-a-thons, Youth mentoring events and youth basketball clinics sponsored by the Boys and Girls Club of Columbia.

He was also a major part of a 2011-12 Missouri Basketball team that played a charitable fund-raiser against Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, Mo., last season following a May 22, 2011 tornado that devastated southwest Missouri and killed more than 150 people.
