Bellarmine University men's basketball player Adam Eberhard garnered honorable-mention All-America honors from Division II Bulletin.

The junior forward received the same recognition last season from DII Bulletin. The All-America accolade comes after Eberhard reaped first-team All-Midwest Region plaudits from the Division II Conference Commissioners Association and the NABC along with first-team All-Great Lakes Valley Conference acknowledgment.

The Evansville, Indiana native helped lead Bellarmine to a 29-3 record after topping the Knights in rebounding (7.0), assists (4.7) and 3-point percentage (52.5), tying for first in steals (35) and finishing second in scoring (14.3) and field-goal percentage (59.0).

Eberhard was named MVP of the GLVC Tournament for the second straight season, capping the tourney with 21 points, 15 rebounds and six assists in a 75-61 victory over Truman State in the title game. In the NCAA Tournament, he posted a 10-rebound performance against Truman State and a 10-assist output against Findlay.

Eberhard made the Top 50 Watch List for the Bevo Francis Award, a Player of the Year honor that is presented annually by the organization Small College Basketball and recognizes NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, NAIA, USCAA and NCCAA.
