Belmont University men’s basketball senior Alex Renfroe (Hermitage, Tenn.) added to his impressive list of postseason accolades with honors from the Associated Press and CollegeInsider.com. Renfroe was named to the 2009 Associated Press Honorable Mention All-America Team prior to the Final Four. The lone Atlantic Sun Conference representative and one of just 62 players in the country to be so recognized, Renfroe becomes just the sixth Belmont student-athlete ever to earn NCAA All-America honors. He joins Lynette Rives (women’s track and field, 2008), Colleen Nilson (volleyball, 2006), Blake Owen (baseball, 2005), Adam Sonn (men’s basketball, 2003), and Keely Weaver (women’s track and field, 2000).
“Alex becomes just the second Belmont player to achieve the recognition of honorable mention All-American. He is included among the nation’s great players and rightfully so, after having one of the greatest individual seasons in Belmont Basketball history,” Belmont head coach Rick Byrd said. “Out basketball staff and his teammates are very proud of such an honor.” Click here for more on this story.
