OSU basketball: Cowboys receive NABC Team Academic Excellence Award

STILLWATER — A day after two former players were named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Honors Court, the Oklahoma State men’s basketball team was honored by the association.

The Cowboys received the NABC Team Academic Excellence Award for just the second time in the eight-year history of the honor. OSU last received the honor for the 2016-17 season.

OSU was one of four Big 12 programs to be honored. Texas, Kansas State and West Virginia also received the honor.

The award honors teams at all college levels that maintained a team grade-point average of 3.0 or better.

On Wednesday, former sharpshooter Thomas Dziagwa and former walk-on Trey Reeves were named to the NABC Honors Court for the academic accomplishments.
