National Association of Basketball Coaches

The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), headquartered in college men's basketball coaches. It was founded in 1927 by Phog Allen, the University of Kansas basketball coach.[1]

Formation of the NABC began when Joint Basketball Rules Committee, then the central governing authority of the game, announced without notice that it had adopted a change in the rules which virtually eliminated [2]

In 1939 the NABC held the first national basketball tournament in Evanston, Illinois at the Northwestern Fieldhouse.[1] Oregon defeated Ohio State for the first tournament championship. The next year, the NABC asked the NCAA to take over the administration of the tournament.[1] In exchange, the NCAA provided complimentary tickets for NABC members to the Finals and placed an NABC member on its Tournament Committee.[1]

NABC initiatives include establishing the original Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts, the format of today's NCAA Basketball Tournament, and the College Basketball Experience and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame at the Sprint Center arena in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. This facility was completed on October 10, 2007.



NABC annually names its All-District Teams, which honors the top Division I players in each district. Regions are divided by college athletic conferences.
