San Antonio - Trinity men's basketball has received the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Team Academic Excellence Award for the 2018-19 season.
The accolade is presented to programs with cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The Tigers garnered the distinction for the seventh consecutive year, dating back to the 2012-13 season when the NABC initiated the award.
