USF lands 16 on Big East All-Academic team
The Bulls have 16 players on the Big East All-Academic team, the conference announced Tuesday. That sets a new program record, topping the previous mark of 13, set after the 2009 season.
Here's more from the release from USF:
All 135 members of the BIG EAST All-Academic team achieved at least a cumulative 3.0 GPA and have completed at least two semesters of academic work.
Headlining the list of honorees were seniors Sampson Genus, Andrew Ketchel, Eric Schwartz, Jacob Sims and Tyler Stowell. Sims was a four-time academic all-conference honoree during his career, while Schwartz and Stowell each made the list for the second straight year.
Six other Bulls were named to the BIG EAST All-Academic team for the second year in a row. That group included Maikon Bonani, Chaz Hine, Michael Lanaris, Evan Landi, Joel Miller and Armando Sanchez.
Bermanley Augustin, Steven Jacques, Lindsey Lamar, Thanasi Mihalakos and Renato Proia each were recognized for the first time in their careers.
