KANSAS CITY (July. 11, 2019) – The Caltech men's basketball team has been recognized as one of just 151 teams across all three NCAA divisions, NAIA and the NJCAA to earn a Team Academic Excellence Award from the National Association of Basketball Coaches. This year marks the seventh-consecutive year the team has received the award since it began back in 2012-13.
The NABC recognized outstanding academic achievement by teams with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better over the past academic year. Caltech is one of just two SCIAC teams to receive the team honor this year, along with California Lutheran University. The 2019 Individual Honors Court list will also be released shortly, where junior and seniors with a cumulative 3.2 GPA or better will be eligible for recognition.
