The Bluffton University men's basketball team had an outstanding semester in the classroom, ending the fall with 14 players above 3.0 for the term. Six Beavers were named to the Dean's List (3.6 and above) for the 2012 Fall semester, while eight other student-athletes finished the semester with a grade point average that exceeded 3.0 during the fall.
Being named to the Dean's List were juniors Jon Fowler (Cincinnati/St. Xavier) and Matt Weisenborn (Bowling Green/Otsego). Two sophomores were recognized on the Dean's List: Ryan Ebbeskotte (Ft. Jennings/Delphos Jefferson) and Zach Rumbaugh (Lima/Senior). A pair of freshmen, Jake Mahnke (Defiance/Tinora) and Billy Taflinger (Lima/Central Catholic), were also named to the Dean's List following their first semester at Bluffton.
"We are pleased with, and proud of, our team's academic performance during the fall semester," stated Coach Neal. "Our players are student-athletes in every facet of the word and we stress this a great deal within our total basketball program here at Bluffton." Coach Neal expects his players to be leaders in the classroom and the results speak for themselves with over 60 percent of the team posting a GPA above 3.0.
