Five Hoosiers Earn Academic All-Big Ten Honors
March 31, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Five Indiana women's basketball players were honored as winter Academic All-Big Ten honorees.
Sophomores Danilsa Andujar, Sasha Chaplin and Lindsay Enterline, and juniors Jori Davis and Andrea McGuirt represented the Hoosiers among seven sports and 546 student-athletes that were recognized by the Big Ten.
"Academics are very important to our women's basketball family," said IU head women's basketball coach Felisha Legette-Jack. "We feel that if you ask a kid to be average, then she will be average. But if we ask a kid to overachieve, she will do just that and understand that there is not a cap on academic achievement. We have asked Danilsa, Sasha, Lindsay, Jori and Andrea to overachieve and they have done a fantastic job. They are amazing kids that understand what it means to be an outstanding student and an excellent athlete. Our program is doing a great job academically and we are fortunate to have resources that are second to none."
Student-athletes must be letterwinners in at least their second academic year at their institution and carry a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better to be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection. A total of 546 winter sport student-athletes were honored across seven sports.
