UCLA men's basketball sophomore Adem Bona has secured second-team NABC All-District 19 honors, as announced on Tuesday by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Bona averaged 12.4 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game in all 33 contests for the Bruins during the 2023-24 season. He shot 58.8 percent from the field and 69.6 percent at the free throw line. Bona ranked second among all Pac-12 players in blocks per game and third in the conference in field goal percentage.

This marks the first season in which Bona has earned NABC All-District accolades. Bona, a 6-foot-10 forward/center, was honored at the end of the regular season as a first-team All-Pac-12 selection. He was also recognized as the Pac-12's Defensive Player of the Year.

The NABC's All-District 19 first-team selections included Keion Brooks Jr. (Washington), Isaac Jones (Washington State), Caleb Love (Arizona), KJ Simpson (Colorado) and Jaylon Tyson (California). Joining Bona as second-team honorees were Oumar Ballo (Arizona), Branden Carlson (Utah), Pelle Larsson (Arizona) and Myles Rice (Washington State).

Washington State's Kyle Smith was honored as the Coach of the Year in District 19.
