KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Under the direction of head coach Kevin Vande Streek, the Calvin men's basketball team has received the NABC Team Academic Excellence Award for the recently completed 2016-17 academic year.
The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced the fifth annual Team Academic Excellence Awards earlier today. The awards program was created by the NABC Committee on Academics.
