KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) recently announced the sixth annual Team Academic Excellence Awards, created by the NABC Committee on Academics. The USA South Athletic Conference is represented by LaGrange College, N.C. Wesleyan College and Piedmont College.

These awards recognize outstanding academic achievement by a team with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better for the 2017-18 season. The NABC invites you to share the success of these student-athletes on social media using the hashtag #NABCTeamExcellence.
