The Idaho State men’s basketball program once again received the Team Academic Excellence honor from the National Association of Basketball Coaches. The Bengals were one of 38 NCAA Division I programs and the only Big Sky Conference program to receive the honor.

These awards recognize outstanding academic achievement by a team with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better for the 2018-19 season.

Between the NAIA, NCAA and NJCAA, there were 150 programs who had a 3.0 or better this past year.

This is the fourth year Idaho State has received the award. The Bengals also received recognition in 2014-15, 2016-17 and 2017-18.
