FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Senior forward Moses Kingsley has been selected as a nominee for the 2017 Allstate NABC Good Works Teams the National Association of Basketball Coaches announced this week.
The Allstate NABC Good Works Teams® recognizes players at all levels of college basketball whose charitable involvement and altruistic acts stand out among all other student-athletes participating in the sport. The players nominated embody the spirit of teamwork and giving back.
The Abuja, Nigeria, native has turned into a true leader in the Fayetteville community, helping organize fundraising events and giving his time to the local Boys & Girls Club. He was named to the 2015 SEC Community Service Team and continues to volunteer at organizations throughout the community to make a difference in the lives of those around him.
A two-year captain for the Razorbacks, Kingsley was the lone SEC male representative at the NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum and attended the SEC Basketball Leadership Council. He is a member of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and a three-year member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll.
Kingsley is one of 111 Division I men’s basketball players to be nominated for the team. The voting panel, consisting of former players and coaches, will select a 10-member squad comprised of five Division I players and five players from Division II, III and NAIA. The team will be announced in February and invited to the 2017 NCAA Men’s Final Four in Phoenix, where they will be recognized and participate in a community service project benefiting the city.
Kingsley and the Razorbacks take the court tonight, welcoming Stephen F. Austin to town for an 8 p.m. showdown on SEC Network.
