Men's Hoops Honored With NABC Team Academic Award
In order to earn an NABC Team Academic Excellence Award, an institution must count the grade point averages of all men's basketball student-athletes competing during the 2012-13 season in NCAA Division I, II, III, and NAIA Division I and II. The award recognizes any team that maintains a team grade point average of 3.0 or better over the course of the season. The Broncos are the only school in the Mid-American Conference represented on the list, and one of only 18 NCAA Division I schools to be named to the list.
Nine members of the team during the 2012-13 season maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.20 or better over the course of their academic careers, while eight posted a GPA better than 3.0 during the Spring semester. There was a total of 12 Broncos that boasted a GPA better than 3.0 during the Fall semester.
