Calvin Men's Basketball  Receives NABC Team Academic Excellence Award

The Calvin men's basketball team has earned the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Team Academic Excellence Award. The NABC released its list of recipients yesterday morning.
 
"It is an honor for our program and our players to receive this award," said Calvin men's basketball coach Kevin Vande Streek. "One of the goals for our program is for our players to work hard in the classroom as well as on the court. This award is the result of a team effort and I am grateful to the men in our program for striving to achieve this accomplishment."
 
The NABC award recognizes outstanding academic achievement by a team with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better for the 2017-18 season. In order to earn an 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 2017-18 season.
