SALEM, Va.-- North Central University Men's Basketball experienced many breakthrough performances on the court this year. That included a post-season tournament berth in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference and an NCCAA Regional Championship that has them headed to the NCCAA National Tournament.
Senior Nathan Roeder (Hudson, Wis./Hudson) was a huge part of that breakthrough including winning the UMAC Player of the Year award, NCCAA Region MVP and setting the school single game and career scoring marks during 2012-13. And now he can add being a finalist for one of the most prestigious individual awards in Division III Basketball to his resume.
On Monday Nathan Roeder was named as one of ten finalists for the 2013 Jostens Trophy. The Jostens Trophy is a national player of the year honor bestowed by the Rotary Club of Salem, Virginia that recognizes basketball ability, academic prowess and community service in NCAA Division III basketball athletes. These elements echo the motto of Rotary International which states "Service Above Self". This is the 16th season of the Jostens Trophy award.
