MOUNT OLIVE -- Mount Olive College seniors Tim Ebbecke and Giora Sela each earned a spot on the 2013 Conference Carolinas All-Academic men's volleyball team.

Ebbecke and Sela received the same honor a year ago.

A middle blocker, Ebbecke is a double-major in criminal justice and psychology. He ranks 20th nationally in blocks per set.

Sela, who hails from Israel, majors in business management and plays middle blocker in a reserve role.

The duo helped lead the Trojans to their third Conference Carolinas regular-season championship in the league's four-year history. MOC is the No. 1 seed and will host a semifinal-round tournament game on Apr. 10.
