ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan basketball coach John Beilein has been named the 2013-14 recipient of the NCAA’s Bob Frederick Sportsmanship Award.

The Frederick Award, first presented in 2009 to honor the late Kansas and Illinois State athletic director, is given to “an NCAA member institution coach or administrator who exhibits a lifelong commitment to sportsmanship and ethical conduct, leading by example and promoting positive fan involvement in and out of competition.”

Beilein says he’s certain there were other coaches who deserved the award, but he’s honored to be chosen. Beilein led the Wolverines to a 28-9 record last season, and Michigan won the Big Ten title.
