KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The National Association of Basketball Coaches has released its 2013-14 Honors Court, placing University of Maryland Eastern Shore junior forward Ishaq Pitt on this year’s team. A total of nearly 900 student-athletes from 335 colleges and universities across the United States were presented with the award, the most in the history of the NABC Honors Court.
This is the second consecutive NABC Honors Court that Pitt has been selected to. It is also the third award he has received off the court. Previously he was named the 2014 Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholar of the Year and was a 2014 NABC Good Works Team honoree. He was one of two players to play in all 30 games this past season for the Hawks, averaging 5.3 ppg, 4.3 rpg and 25 steals.
In order to receive the award, recipients must have at least a 3.2 GPA and stand as a junior or senior academically. Pitt was the only Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference men’s basketball represented on the list.
