March 9, 2007

KANSAS CITY, MO. (March 7, 2007) -- The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced today the NABC Division I All-America teams, recognizing the nation's best men's collegiate basketball student-athletes, selected and voted on by NABC member coaches.

About the National Association of Basketball Coaches Located in Kansas City, MO, the NABC was founded in 1927 by Phog Allen, the legendary basketball coach at the University of Kansas. Allen, a student of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, organized coaches into this collective group to serve as Guardians of the Game. The NABC currently claims nearly 5,000 members consisting primarily of university and college men's basketball coaches. All members of the NABC are expected to uphold the core values of being a Guardian of the Game by bringing attention to the positive aspects of the sport of basketball and the role coaches play in the academic and athletic lives of today's student-athletes. The four core values of being a Guardian of the Game are advocacy, leadership, service and education. Additional information about the NABC, its programs and membership, can be found at www.nabc.com.
