Men’s Basketball Receives Academic Excellence Award

July 12, 2017

The Bradley men’s basketball program ranks among the nation’s academic elite, earning the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Team Academic Excellence Award on Wednesday.

Of the 351 Division I schools in the country, Bradley was one of 47 programs to earn the national distinction. The award recognizes outstanding academic achievement by a team with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better for the 2016-17 season, including all student-athletes who competed during the year.

Bradley is only one of two schools in the Missouri Valley Conference (Drake) and one of four Division I programs in the state of Illinois (DePaul, Northwestern and Illinois) to earn the recognition.
