The Cal State University East Bay (CSUEB) menÕs basketball team was named as a recipient of a 2014-2015 Team Academic Excellence Award by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) on July 29.
The Pioneers were one of 153 programs across all three NCAA divisions to capture the third annual Academic Excellence Award, which was created by the NABC Committee on Academics and recognizes teams that maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average for the school year.
The East Bay men posted a collective GPA of 3.07 for the 2014-15 season. They have now finished four straight quarters at 3.0 or better under head coach Gus Argenal.
The Pioneers also placed four student-athletes on the 2014-15 California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) All-Academic team, tied for the most of any CCAA school.
