Eight Named to Conference Carolinas All-Academic Team

HIGH POINT, N.C. – Conference Carolinas is proud to announce the 2011-2012 Basketball Academic All-Conference award winners.  League member institutions stress the role of "Academics and Athletics Working Together" and each sport’s Academic All-Conference award winners exemplify this continued league-wide commitment.

King College had eight representatives from both the men’s and women’s teams represent the College on this year’s All-Conference Academic team. King holds the most individual student-athletes on the combined list that met the criteria of the award. North Greenville was next in line with six student-athletes named to the team.

The 2011-2012 Conference Carolinas Basketball Academic All-Conference representatives have been awarded to junior and senior student-athletes with a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or higher on a 4.0 scale. The GPA is calculated based on the student-athletes cumulative average through the previous semester and each student-athlete must have attended their member institution for at least one academic year.
