Air Force senior forward/center Grant Parker received the Bob Spear Award – the men’s basketball program’s top honor – at tonight’s banquet.

The Spear Award is given to the student athlete that is outstanding in all areas of the academy – academics, athletics and military performance.

Parker, who led the Falcons in scoring during the 2009-10 season with 12.7 points, shared the team’s Most Valuable Player honor with junior guard Evan Washington, the only Falcon to start all 31 games this season.

Seniors Mike McLain and Avery Merriex shared the Falcon Award, given to the players that give 100 percent regardless of their situation and place on the team.
