SEWARD, Neb. – For the second year in a row, Concordia University Men’s Basketball student-athlete Carter Kent has been chosen as an Academic All-District® Team honoree by College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Kent landed on the 2020-21 NAIA District 3 team that covers the states of Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The District 3 list is an exclusive one of five team members, including two others from the GPAC.
The 2020-21 Academic All-District® Men's Basketball Teams, selected by CoSIDA, recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the court and in the classroom. The CoSIDA Academic All-America® program separately recognizes basketball honorees in four divisions — NAIA, NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III.
A native of Crete, Neb., Kent continues to carry a spotless 4.0 grade-point average while studying biology. Named the 2018-19 GPAC Freshman of the Year, Kent has now collected second team all-conference accolades in back-to-back seasons. As a junior in 2020-21, Kent averaged 15.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game while shooting 40.4 percent from the floor, 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 75.0 percent from the foul line. Kent racked up a career high 29 points in a win over Mount Marty this past season. Back on Jan. 9, Kent became the 32nd player in program history to reach 1,000 career points (currently at 1,145).
First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® ballot. First-, second- and third-team (if applicable) Academic All-America® honorees will be announced in late May.
