A big congratulations to Jonny David and Dillion Pulliam, who were honored by the National Association of Basketball Coaches for their outstanding academic achievements following the 2017-18 season. The NABC recognizes students who are juniors or seniors (what are those?) with a GPA of 3.2 or higher.
Pulliam left the program this past May to pursue a master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering at Carnegie Mellon. He graduated from UK with a 4.0 GPA and gave up a final year of athletic eligibility to begin the next phase of his education.
David is back this year as the old man on the team. He is a three-time member of the SEC Academic Team and is slated to graduate in May of 2019 with a degree in kinesiology.
