The Winona State men's basketball team has earned the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Team Academic Excellence Award for the 2016-17 season. This award recognizes a team with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better. This is the fifth annual Team Academic Excellence Award and the second time Winona State has earned the award.
"We are extremely proud of the academic achievements in the classroom of our players," expressed coach Todd Eisner. "Winona State prides itself on creating an environment that allows our student-athletes to excel academically and I have witnessed that in my two years on campus. Additionally, the work that Justin Loehr does with our players in the Student-Athlete Academic Success Center is exceptional. He, along with our players, deserve the credit for this recognition from the NABC."
