Karvel Anderson has landed in some pretty select company.

The Elkhart native and Robert Morris University senior was named as one of 40 Div. I players to the Associated Press All-American honorable mention list for men's basketball.

Anderson, who graduated from Elkhart Memorial, led the Northeast Conference in 3-point shooting at 46 percent. He also led the Colonials with 19.7 points, 51 percent field goal shooting, 46 3-point shooting and .841 free throw shooting.

Robert Morris was 22-14 and won the Northeast Conference regular championship, but lost in the league tourney championship game to Mount St. Mary's.

Doug McDermott of Creighton, Jabari Parker of Duke, Russ Smith of Louisville, Shabazz Napier of UConn and Sean Kilpatrick of Cincinnati were named AP first teamers.
