Nominations for the All-Academic Team are submitted by each of the BIG EAST’s 10 member and nine affiliate institutions. To be eligible for the honor, a nominee must have competed in a BIG EAST-sponsored sport, attained a minimum grade-point average of 3.00 for the preceding academic year, and completed a minimum of two consecutive semesters or three consecutive quarters of academic work, with a total of 18 semester or 27 quarter credits, not including remedial courses.
Last year, the men’s program had 26 players receive the accolade, 18 of which also received the honor last year.
The women’s program was also recently named to the IWLCA Zag Sports Academic Honor Squad for their performance in the classroom for the eighth-straight year.
