Atmar Mundu, among the most consistent scorers in the Cascade Conference, capped his Southern Oregon men’s basketball career with an NAIA All-America honorable mention nod when postseason awards were announced Tuesday by the national office.

The 6-foot senior guard from Fremont, Calif., ranked seventh in the CCC in points per game (16.0), third in 3-pointers per game (2.7), fourth in 3-point percentage (44.3) and 14th in field-goal percentage (50.8). He scored in double figures each of the first 30 games of the season.

Mundu is the 10th player in team history to receive honorable mention or make an All-America team. He was also the first Raider in five years to average at least 16 points while shooting 50 percent or better from the field.

He posted 20-plus points on eight different occasions and hit three or more 3-pointers 18 times. His season-best output was a 32-point performance against then-No. 6-ranked Jessup (Calif.) in which he shot 9-of-11 with five triples in leading the Raiders to a 94-88 upset.

Mundu connected on at least half of his shot attempts in 18 of 30 outings. Over two seasons and 60 games with the Raiders, he averaged 13.9 points. His career culminated with SOU’s appearance in the NAIA National Tournament, the team’s first since 2020.
