KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Seniors Joel Barndt and Jeremy Nicolas and junior Tyree Anderson, all of Rocky Mountain College, have been selected to the NAIA All-America teams, which were announced by the national office on Wednesday.

Anderson, a 6-foot-3 junior guard from Las Vegas, was chosen to the third team. Barndt, a 6-9 senior forward from Billings, and Nicolas, a 6-6 senior center from Villepinte, France, received honorable mention recognition.

Those three helped lead Rocky to the regular-season and conference-tournament championships this season. The Battlin' Bears also advanced to the NAIA national tournament for the second consecutive year.

The All-America selections were made by the NAIA's All-America Committee.

Marcel Towns, a senior guard from the University of Great Falls, was named to the second team.

The honorable mention listing also included Tallon Robertson of Westminster College.
