Milligan named to NABC Honors Court

The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) has announced the recipients of the 2016-17 Honors Court. This recognition is for men's collegiate basketball student-athletes who excelled in academics during the past season. Representing Midway University as the first-ever student-athlete to earn the award was Gerry Milligan. The rising junior from West Palm Beach, Fla., is making his first career appearance on the Honors Court. "I want to applaud Gerry for being named to the NABC Honors Court," said Midway men's basketball coach Joe Krupinski. "It is well-deserved for someone who has always taken his academic performance seriously and has excelled as a result." Krupinski added, "As an upperclassman, he is a great example to our younger players of our program's expectations of hard work and achievement not only on the court, but in the classroom and the community." 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. In order to be eligible, the student-athlete must be a junior or senior academically with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.2 or higher. The student-athlete must have matriculated at least one year at their current institution and their coach must be a member of the NABC.
