For the second straight year, the RU men's basketball program had a pair of players earn postseason recognition from the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference. Junior forward Tony Diemer (Rockford, Ill.) was named First Team All-NACC, while senior Trae Blumhorst (Mendota, Ill.) was voted the NACC Defensive Player of the Year. This marks the third consecutive season Rockford has had at least one first team all-conference selection and the second straight season the Regents have had the conference's defensive player of the year.
