KANSAS CITY - A total of five Columbia basketball players were named NAIA Scholar-Athletes this week for the 2012-13 season. In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status.

On the women's side, Kaitlin Allphin and Julie Teeple received the award for the second and third time respectively. Allphin, a senior from Crocker, Mo., is a business administration major with a minor in education. Teeple, a senior native of Versailles, Mo., is a marketing major and is currently pursuing her master's degree in business administration. Julie was also an American Midwest Conference (AMC) honorable mention selection after averaging 10.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game for the AMC regular season and tournament champions. Both players were key contributors during the year for the Lady Cougars, helping the squad advance to its fifth consecutive NAIA National Tournament.

Senior Hal Payne and juniors Blake and Brock Walker were honored on the men's side for the second time in their careers. The trio of players helped Columbia set a new single season wins record with 35 and advance to the quarterfinals of the NAIA National Tournament. The Cougars also won the AMC regular season and tournament title while receiving the first ever No. 1 national ranking in program history.
