Three Land on NABC Honors Court
July 19, 2017

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Three members of the Boise State men’s basketball team were named to the 2016-17 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court. Nick Duncan, Matt Grooms and Zach Haney were recognized as collegiate basketball student-athletes who excelled in the classroom.

To be considered, student-athletes must have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.2 or higher at the end of the 2016-17 academic year, be a junior or senior academically and be on the varsity men’s basketball roster. James Reid was ineligible for the award this year as a graduate student, but was recognized in 2015-16.

Duncan (3.47 GPA) and Grooms (3.44 GPA) both graduated in the spring. Haney, a redshirt sophomore athletically in 2016-17, completed his junior year academically with a 3.21 GPA and is expected to graduate next spring with another year of eligibility beyond that.

Since the inception of the award in 2007, Boise State men’s basketball has combined for 15 honors from 11 different student-athletes. Duncan joins Jake Ness, Joe Hanstad and Rob Heyer as the only Broncos to be named to the honors court twice. Twelve of the 15 awards have come during Leon Rice’s tenure as head coach.
