NORTH TEXAS -- Penn senior guard Dau Jok enjoyed a busy weekend in North Texas for the 2014 NCAA Men's Final Four, as a guest of both the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and the U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA).

As one of five members of the 2014 Allstate NABC Good Works Team, Jok attended the Allstate Welcome Dinner at the Crescent Club on Friday night. On Saturday, the Good Works Team was recognized on court during the second semifinal between Kentucky and Wisconsin at AT&T Stadium.

On Sunday morning, the Good Works Team participated in a basketball clinic at the Valley View Sportsplex with members of the Special Olympics of Texas and special guest, Allstate NABC Good Works Team ambassador Grant Hill. That afternoon, the group was recognized and participate in an autograph session at the Buick Arena inside the NCAA Bracket Town. On Sunday evening, the Good Works Team attended the NABC Guardians of the Game Awards Show and will be recognized at that event.

Allstate hosted a brunch on Monday morning, but Jok will not be able to attend. Instead, that morning he was off collecting his Most Courageous Award from the USBWA at its awards brunch at the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas.
