Former Butler basketball standout Matt Howard won the
Elite 88 Award for the 2010 and 2011 NCAA Division I Men’s
Basketball Championships. Howard is the only Butler athlete
to ever earn the prestigious NCAA academic award.
Howard, who graduated in 2011 with a double major in finance and MIS, received the award during the Men’s Final Four Salute Presentation on March 31, 2011. He was recognized by Salute Presentation host Jim Nantz and then escorted to the front of the stage where he received a congratulatory handshake from President George H. W. Bush and his wife Barbara Bush.
Howard was a three-time Academic All-American and was named the 2010-11 Academic All-American of the Year.
The Elite 88, an award founded by the NCAA, recognizes the true essence of the student-athlete by honoring the individual who has reached the pinnacle of competition at the national championship level in his or her sport, while also achieving the highest academic standard among his or her peers. The Elite 88 is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade point average participating at the finals site for each of the NCAA’s 88 championships.
