Jim Nantz Wins Court Of Honor Award

Young Jim Nantz

July 26, 2012

HOUSTON - Cougar great and broadcasting legend Jim Nantz has been selected to receive the fourth annual Court of Honor Award from the National Association of Basketball Coaches Foundation.

The Court of Honor Award is presented to an individual who has roots in college basketball, values those roots and has gone on to distinguish himself in his profession, exhibiting the highest standards of leadership.

Nantz is a 1981 graduate of the University of Houston and former member of the Houston Golf Team. He is best known for his work on CBS as a play-by-play announcer for the NFL, PGA, and NCAA men's college basketball. During his career, he has won multiple Emmy Awards and is a five-time National Sportscaster of the Year award recipient.

In 2007, and again in 2010, Nantz covered the Super Bowl, the NCAA Final Four and The Masters, all within 63 days. After conquering the feat in 2010, Nantz won his second consecutive Emmy Award for Outstanding Sports Personality.

Along with being the lead play-by-play man for the NFL on CBS and the familiar voice of the Masters, Nantz called his 27th consecutive NCAA Men's Final Four broadcast in New Orleans this past season.

"As the voice of NCAA men's college basketball for almost three decades, Jim Nantz has contributed significantly to the tremendous growth we have experienced in our game," said president of the NABC Foundation and Duke University head coach Mike Krzyzewski. "Jim's elegant style fits perfectly with the excitement of the games. It is difficult to imagine anyone else calling the play-by-play for the Final Four."

Nantz will receive the award at the Court of Honor Gala, which will be held in New York City on Sept. 17.
