KANSAS CITY, Mo. – One current Gonzaga men’s basketball player and a pair of former players, were named to the National Basketball Coaches’ Association (NABC) Honors Court Tuesday. Josh Perkins, Nigel Williams-Goss and Dustin Triano all received the academic honor.

He was also selected as the Men's Scholar Athlete of the Year by the DI-AAA ADA and received the Mike Gilleran Scholar Athlete of the Year honor by the West Coast Conference.
