KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The 2013-14 NAIA Division I Men's Basketball All-America Teams were announced from the NAIA office.  Rhett Soliday of Vanguard (Calif.) is tabbed the 2013-14 Rawlings-NAIA National Coach of the Year.
 

All of the selections are made by the All-America Committee and comprises a First, Second, Third and Honorable Mention Team. There are 10 members on each of the first three All-America teams.

Soliday, who wrapped up his fourth year, led the Lions to their first-ever national championship title after a 70-65 win over Emmanuel (Ga.) on Tuesday. The Golden State Athletic Conference (GSAC) Coach of the Year finished the season with a school-record 32-6 mark and now stands 96-59 (.619) in his career.
