Owls Nick Masterson Named to NABC Honors Court

KENNESAW, Ga. – Nick Masterson has been honored by the National Association of Basketball Coaches by naming him to its 2016-17 NABC Honors Court on Tuesday, July 18.
 
This is the third academic award that Masterson has picked up after the 2016-17 season after also being named CoSIDA Academic All-District and to the ASUN All-Academic Team.
 
The mechanical engineering major holds a 3.44 GPA and had a great season on the court averaging 12.9 points per game shooting 54.1 percent from three-point range. That mark was the second best in the nation a season ago.
 
To be eligible for the NABC Honors Court, a student-athlete must be a junior or senior and hold at least a 3.2 GPA.
 
The NABC was founded in 1927 by Phog Allen, the legendary basketball coach at the University of Kansas. Allen, a student of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, organized coaches into this collective group to serve as Guardians of the Game. The NABC currently has nearly 5,000 members consisting primarily of university and college men’s basketball coaches. All members of the NABC are expected to uphold the core values of being a Guardian of the Game by bringing attention to the positive aspects of the sport of basketball and the role coaches play in the academic and athletic lives of today‘s student-athletes.
