Seibring earns CAA Scholar-Athlete of the Year award
Elon University sophomore forward Tyler Seibring has been named the Colonial Athletic Association Men’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year, the league announced Friday.
The conference honors one scholar-athlete in each of its 21 championship sports. Nominees must be a starter or important reserve on their team and must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.25. The winners were selected by a vote of the media relations directors at each CAA institution.
Seibring, who carries a 3.98 GPA as an economics and English double major, claims his first-career Scholar-Athlete of the Year honor from the league. He is also the program’s first CAA Scholar-Athlete of the Year selection.

The sophomore is also a member of the Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society and has made the President’s List and the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll during his first three semesters at Elon.
Seibring played and started in all 32 games his sophomore season. He led the Phoenix in scoring (14.4 ppg) and rebounding (6.9 rpg), both which ranked in the top-12 in the CAA.
