One Of Only Two Ivy League Schools Honored

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Yale men's basketball team had quite a bit of success on the court during the 2013-14 season. The Bulldogs won 19 games, finished second in the Ivy League and reached the championship game of the post season tournament.

Yale also was proficient in the classroom and has been honored by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) with a Team Academic Excellence Award.

The award, created by the NABC Committee On Academics, recognizes outstanding academic achievement by a team with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better for the 2013-14 season.

Yale was one of only two Ivy League schools to be honored.

Earlier this week, Greg Kelley and Matt Townsend were named to the NABC Honors Court, which recognizes student-athletes who excelled in academics during the past season.
