Notice Named NABC Good Works Team Nominee
Nov. 30, 2016
COLUMBIA, S.C. – University of South Carolina senior guard Duane Notice has been named a nominee for the Allstate NABC Good Works Team. It was announced by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) on Wednesday morning. The team honors student-athletes for their outstanding community outreach.
During his time at South Carolina Notice has been extremely involved in community outreach, spending time with several organizations such as: Harvest Hope Food Bank, Special Olympics, Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital, Boy Scouts, the Dorn V.A. Medical Center in town, Ronald McDonald House, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, Epworth Children’s Home and Brookland Baptist Church to name a few. Also of note, Notice and his teammates spent time volunteering with the Red Cross Flood Relief during the historic flooding in Columbia in October 2015, making care packages of food and personal hygiene products for families who had been devastated by the flooding.
For the last three summers the Gamecock men’s basketball team has held its “8K In 8 Days” campaign, aiming to touch the lives of 8,000 people in the greater Columbia community and the State of South Carolina through outreach events. During this initiative, Notice has been a mainstay, spending time with children at various clinic type events, while also visiting the South Carolina National Guard and Fort Jackson, an Army base in Columbia. Notice is a role model for his teammates when it comes to his passion for community outreach.
Athletic departments and sports information directors across the country nominated the 181 NABC student-athletes for the prestigious honor. Two special voting panels, headlined by former Duke University basketball athlete, two-time NCAAÂ® champion and seven-time NBA All-Star Grant Hill, and former Notre Dame basketball star, two-time Nancy Lieberman Award winner and current WNBA player Skylar Diggins, will select 10-member teams from both the NABC and WBCA, comprised of five student-athletes from the NCAA Division I level and five student-athletes from Divisions II, III and the NAIA. The final roster of 20 award recipients will be unveiled in February.
Members of the Allstate NABC Good Works TeamÂ® will be invited by Allstate, an official corporate partner of the NCAA, to the 2017 NABC Convention and 2017 NCAA Men’s Final FourÂ® in Phoenix, where they will participate in a community service project benefitting the city.
