KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced the 2017-18 Honors Court on Tuesday afternoon, and Norwich men's basketball had three student-athletes recognized for their academic achievement during the 2017-18 season.
To gain a spot on the Honors Court, a student-athlete must meet four academic standards:
1) Academically a junior or senior and a varsity player.
2) Cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2017-18 academic year.
3) Students must have matriculated at least one year at their current institution.
4) Member of an NCAA Division I, II, III, or NAIA Division I or II institution with an NABC member coach.
Three seniors represented the Cadets on this year's Honors Court, as Tommy Fitzgerald (Williston, Vt.), Ricky Giroux (Colchester, Vt.), and Ryan Booth (Northfield, Vt.) earned this prestigious recognition.
Majoring in Management & Accounting, Criminal Justice, and Physical Education respectively, the three seniors excelled both in the classroom and on the court, as they helped lead Norwich to the program's first playoff spot since the 2013-14 season this past year. The Cadets fell to the Johnson & Wales Wildcats in the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Quarterfinals by a 77-72 final score.
The NABC Honors Court recognizes the talents and gifts that these men possess off the court and the hard work they exhibit in the classroom. The NABC encourages you to share the success of these student-athletes using #NABCHonorsCourt.
