Winona State Men's Basketball Head Coach Todd Eisner shares a play design with his team near the end of Saturday's game at McCown Gymnasium.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Winona State University men’s basketball team has been honored with the Team Academic Excellence Award, presented annually by the National Association of Basketball Coaches. The award recognizes outstanding academic achievement by a team with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better for the 2018-19 season.

“We are very proud that our program received this recognition from the NABC again this year,” said head coach Todd Eisner. “Our players do a fantastic job of balancing their responsibilities of being both a student and an athlete. For our team to achieve this honor all four years that we have been at WSU is something we are very proud of.”

The Warriors have been recognized with the NABC’s Team Academic Excellence Award in each of Eisner’s four seasons at the helm at Winona State.

Winona State University is one of just three NSIC men’s basketball programs to earn the award in 2018-19.

In order to receive the NABC Team Academic Excellence Award, institutions in the NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA must count the grade point averages of all men’s student-athletes who competed during the 2018-19 campaign.
