Men’s Basketball Wins ACC Sportsmanship Award

May 3, 2004

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference announced the recipients of the Football and Winter Sportsmanship Awards today. Teams receiving the award have conducted themselves with a high degree of character and good sportsmanship, as determined by a vote of the league’s teams.

The conference presents sportsmanship awards for each of its 25 sponsored sports. The concept of these awards was created by the ACC Student Athlete Advisory Committee in an effort to recognize teams who earned the utmost regard from their peers during competition. As is stated in the conference’s Mission Statement, “It [the ACC] strongly adheres to the principles of integrity and sportsmanship, and supports the total development of the student-athlete and each member institution’s athletics department staff, with the intent of producing enlightened leadership for tomorrow.”

Duke and Florida State tallied two honors each, while Clemson, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Virginia and Wake Forest collected one apiece.
