Bobcat Men’s Hoops Adds Team Academic Honor

For the third time in program history and the second-straight season, the Georgia College Men's Basketball team has received the Team Academic Excellence Award from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), the organization announced Thursday.

"I am extremely proud of how our guys did in the classroom again this year," said GC Head Coach Mark Gainous. "I am very appreciative of how hard our student-athletes work in the classroom."

The honor is given to teams in the NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA that achieved a 3.0 or better GPA for the 2019-20 season. The Bobcats also won the honor in its first year of existence, the 2012-13 season.
