Congratulations to the Allan Hancock College men’s basketball team as its members soar in the classroom as well as on the court. A recent press release from the school revealed that the team boasts a 3.44 team average GPA; five players are boasting a perfect 4.0 GPA.
Coach Ralph Gorton pushes his players to achieve academic excellence through mandatory study hours and even making his players take pictures of their professors with their cell phones to ensure they’re attending classes.
“They’re all smart, capable, and have the capacity to be good students,” Gorton said. “They just need support and consequences.”
The Bulldogs have six games left in the regular season and are 15-7 on the court. Gorton wants all players to earn a 3.25 GPA or better for the spring semester.
