DE PERE - St. Norbert College earned three mentions on the All-Midwest Region team selected by the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

Senior guard Brandon Gries was a first-team All-Region selection, while senior guard Kam Cerroni was a second-team All-Region choice. St. Norbert coach Gary Grzesk was named Midwest Region Coach of the Year.

Gries' and Cerroni's honors duplicated their All-Region honors from D3hoops.com. Gries, the 2014 Midwest Conference Player of the Year, averaged 16.3 points per game and grabbed 5.4 rebounds per game, both second-best marks on the team. Gries finished his career with 1,257 career point to place 11th on the St. Norbert career scoring list. Cerroni averaged 16.5 points per game, and connected on 54.1 percent (99-for-183) of his there-point field-goal attempts to lead Division III.

Grzesk earned his second NABC Midwest Region Coach of the Year honor, with his first coming in 2010. Grzesk piloted the Green Knights to a 25-2 record, their best single-season mark in school history, and an 18-0 ledger in the Midwest Conference. Grzesk owns a 145-56 record in eight seasons at St. Norbert, and has led the Green Knights to four MWC titles. The Green Knights are 104-27 in the last five seasons.
