CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Harvard men's basketball team has been honored by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) with the NABC Team Academic Excellence Award for the 2015-16 season, while recent graduate Patrick Steeves '16 and rising senior Corbin Miller have been recognized as members of the NABC Honors Court.

The Team Academic Excellence Award celebrates programs across all divisions that achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better for the 2015-16 academic year. Harvard and Yale were the only members of the Ivy League to receive the distinction.

The Honors Court, meanwhile, recognizes student-athletes who are either juniors or seniors academically, and have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher. Steeves, who graduated in May as an applied mathematics concentrator, was also named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District I first team after enjoying a breakout season in which he averaged 9.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game. Miller, who was voted as a co-captain for the 2016-17 season, averaged 7.1 points on 37.3 percent shooting from 3. A government concentrator, he will enter next year ranked seventh in program history with 146 career triples.
