Duncan, Reid on NABC Honors Court
July 29, 2016

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Boise State men’s basketball student-athletes Nick Duncan and James Reid were recognized for their work in the classroom by the National Association of Basketball Coaches. The NABC announced its 2015-16 Honors Court this week, distinguishing collegiate men’s basketball student-athletes who are academically a junior or senior (not graduate students) and carry at least a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average.

Duncan is a rising senior, double majoring in finance and accounting and boasting a 3.66 cumulative GPA. Earlier this year he was named Academic All-District 7 First Team by CoSIDA. The Sydney, Australia, native has played 98 games as a Bronco, averaging 8.6 points per contest and knocking down 179 three-pointers in his career- good for No. 8 in school history.

Reid sat out last season per NCAA rules after transferring from Arkansas-Little Rock and will enter next season as a redshirt senior, his only year to play with the Broncos. While redshirting last year the Bend, Ore., native completed his undergraduate degree in business while maintaining a 3.84 cumulative GPA. Reid will play next year as a graduate student and is expected to immediately take on a leadership role with the Broncos. Head coach Leon Rice has called Reid, “the best player-coach I’ve ever been around.”

Boise State will begin practicing Aug. 1, in preparation for its foreign tour to Costa Rica. The Broncos will be out of the country Aug. 11-16, playing exhibition games against teams from Costa Rica and Canada.
