Connolly Selected to the NABC Honors Court
July 11, 2012
ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Recent Navy graduate Ted Connolly has been selected to the 2012 National Basketball Coaches Association (NABC) Honors Court, the organization announced late yesterday afternoon. In order to be named to the Honors Court, a student-athlete must be a junior or senior who maintains a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher. Connolly was one of 15 Patriot League representatives named to the squad and joins Brian Richards (Class of 2009) as the only players in school history to be named to the Honors Court.
Connolly, a native of Wexford, Pa., registered a 3.27 GPA in History to earn the accolade for the second time, also earning the award following his sophomore season (2010). On the court this past winter, Connolly appeared in 19 games with seven starts, all coming during Patriot League play. He averaged 0.7 ppg, 0.6 rpg and dished out nine assists with eight steals against just seven turnovers in 134 minutes of action. He tallied a career-high three points with two steals against Lehigh on Senior Night and logged a career-best 25 minutes against Norfolk State on New Year's Day, tallying two points with three rebounds, three assists and two steals.
Connolly received the service assignment of Navy SEAL upon commissioning on Memorial Day weekend.
