TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology senior Tyler Duffy has been officially nominated for the 2016 Allstate National Association of Basketball Coaches Good Works Team, according to today's release by the NABC.

Duffy is among 154 men's basketball players at the NCAA Division I, II, III and NAIA levels nominated for the Allstate NABC Good Works Team.  Five NCAA Division I players will comprise one team, with five players from NCAA Division II, III and NAIA comprising a second team when the final team is announced Feb. 9.

Duffy was nominated for his efforts in helping a local Wabash Valley family during the 2014 Holiday season.  His efforts helped arrange presents for a local family who had lost almost everything they owned in a house fire earlier that year.

Duffy learned of the family from on-campus efforts that include lists of those in the Wabash Valley with specific needs. 

This season, Duffy ranks third on the team in scoring with an average of 10.4 points per game.  He scored a career-high 25 points against Wabash earlier this season.

Duffy and the Fightin' Engineers return to action with the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference opener against Mount St. Joseph on Saturday at 3 p.m. at Hulbert Arena.  The game also serves as Vigo County Day, with Vigo County school students and one parent admitted free.
