McPherson College’s men’s basketball team was the only one in the KCAC to be honored by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) for the Team Academic Excellence Award.

The award recognizes outstanding academic achievement by teams with cumulative grade point averages (GPA) of 3.0 or better for the 2016-17 season.

In order to earn a NABC Team Academic Excellence Award, institutions in the NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA must count the grade point averages of all men's basketball student-athletes who competed during the 2016-17 season.

There were 211 teams in the country to receive this recognition.
