Recognized For Academic Achievement
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – 2015-16 was a memorable season on the court for the Bulldogs, who captured their second straight Ivy League title and advanced to the round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament. Yale was quite successful in the classroom as well. Five members of that championship team have been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Honors Court. Justin Sears '16, Nick Victor '16 and rising seniors Anthony Dallier, Sam Downey and AJ Edwards were recognized for their hard work off the court.
In order to be named to the Honors Court, a student-athlete must meet a high standard of academic criteria. The qualifications are as follows:
1. Academically a junior or senior and a varsity player.
2. Cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2015-16 academic year.
3. Students must have matriculated at least one year at their current institution.
4. Member of a NCAA Division I, II, III, or NAIA Division I or II institution with a NABC member coach.
Victor was honored for the second straight year, while Sears, Dallier, Downey and Edwards were first-time recipients.
