This marks the second postseason honor for both players as Armstrong was named to the 2019-20 All-SWAC First Team while Rasas picked up second team honors. The 10-member team was voted on by member coaches of the NABC in NCAA Division I.

The Houston native scored in double figures in 24 of 28 games played with a high of 32 at Nevada.

Rasas posted nine double-doubles while leading the team with 8.2 rebounds and was fourth with 9.8 points per game. The sophomore from St. Louis, Mo. had 12 games with 10-plus rebounds and was a two-time SWAC Player of the Week.
