The Allstate NABC Good Works Team® recognizes players at all levels of college basketball whose charitable involvement and altruistic acts stand out amongst all other student-athletes participating in the sport. From leading an initiative to help end the water crisis in Flint, Mich., to co-founding a non-profit with the mission to improve literacy rates across the country, the players nominated embody the true spirit of teamwork and giving back.

"The positive impact that student-athletes are making on college campuses and communities around the world can sometimes go unnoticed," said Thomas Clarkson, president of the west territory for Allstate Insurance Company and a member of the 2017 NABC Good Works Team® selection panels. "Allstate is a proud supporter of NCAA® college basketball and takes immense pride in working with the NABC to recognize players who continue to make giving back a priority and inspire future generations of athletes."

Athletic departments and sports information directors across the country nominated the NABC student-athletes for the prestigious honor. A special voting panel, headlined by former Duke University basketball athlete, two-time NCAA® champion and seven-time NBA All-Star Grant Hill will select a 10-member team 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 will be unveiled in February.

Members of the Allstate NABC Good Works Team® will be invited by Allstate, an official corporate partner of the NCAA, to the 2017 NABC Convention and 2017 NCAA Men's Final Four® in Phoenix, where they will participate in a community service project benefitting the city. Allstate is an official corporate partner of the NABC and NCAA.

"The growth of the Allstate NABC Good Works Team program in five years has been remarkable with a record-setting number again for 2017," said NABC Executive Director Jim Haney. "We are very grateful to Allstate for shining a bright light on these men and women in college basketball whose compassion and commitment continue to help so many."

In addition to Clarkson and Hill, the 2017 Allstate NABC Good Works Team® selection panel members include: former college basketball student-athletes Clark Kellogg (Ohio State University / CBS Sports) and Len Elmore (University of Maryland / CBS Sports / ESPN); media members Seth Davis (Sports Illustrated / CBS), Dana O'Neil (ESPN); former head coaches Bobby Cremins (Georgia Tech / College of Charleston), Seth Greenberg (Virginia Tech University).
