The National Association of Basketball Coaches has honored the Suffolk men’s basketball team with the Team Academic Excellence Award for the 2016-17 season.

This was the Rams basketball team’s debut on the academic team. Suffolk was the only member of the Great Northeast Athletic Conference to earn the association’s distinction.

The National Association of Basketball Coaches Team Academic Excellence Award, which began in 2012-13, celebrates programs across all divisions that achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better for the 2016-17 academic year.
