      Michigan Tech men's basketball player Austin Armga was named to the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan College Academic-Athletic Team. Armga was named an All-American and Academic All-American in 2013-14 while leading the Huskies to a 24-8 record and an appearance in the NCAA Midwest Regional title game.

      The guard from Waupun, Wis., scored 736 points during his senior season, which was seven shy of a school record and second most in the nation. He finished his career as Tech's all-time leader in free throw percentage (86.8) and ninth on the scoring list with 1,577 points. Armga holds a 3.78 GPA in exercise science.

      Armga was also named a Division II Bulletin All-American, Capital One Academic All-American and selected to the NABC Midwest Region First Team, Daktronics Midwest Region Second Team, GLIAC First Team, NCAA Midwest Regional All-Tournament Team and GLIAC All-Tournament Team.

      Each BCAM Honor Team pays tribute to five scholar-athletes from Michigan colleges and universities at the NCAA I, NCAA II, NCAA III, and NAIA levels. To be eligible, players have to be either a starter or an important reserve and have at least a 3.2 grade point average. The BCAM teams are selected on the basis of academic achievement, athletic accomplishments, grade point average and their coach's BCAM membership.

      Lake Superior State's Derek Billing also was named to the Men's team.
