KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Following its second postseason appearance in three years, the Boston University men’s basketball team has been recognized for its efforts in the classroom with the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Team Academic Excellence Award, the NABC announced Tuesday morning.
Created by the NABC Committee on Academics, the award recognizes outstanding academic achievement by a team with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better for the academic year. In order to earn a NABC Team Academic Excellence Award, institutions in the NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA must count the grade point averages of all men’s student-athletes who competed during the 2021-22 season.
The Terriers posted a cumulative 3.20 team GPA to earn the award for the third consecutive year a day after 10 Terriers were named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll for posting a 3.20+ GPA during the spring semester. Garrett Pascoe, Jonas Harper, Michael Quinn, Tarkan Taboglu, Tim Uzoegbu and Walter Whyte were also placed on the NABC Honors Court for owning cumulative GPAs above 3.20.
