The University of Louisville had an impressive 246 student-athletes named to the 2011-12 BIG EAST All-Academic Team, the conference announced Friday from Providence, R.I.
The Cardinals had the fourth-most selections in the conference, checking in behind Georgetown (340), Notre Dame (321) and Villanova (314).
Nominations for the All-Academic Team are submitted by each of the BIG EAST’s 16 member 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.
The nominations are reviewed and approved by the BIG EAST Academic Affairs Committee. There are 3,370 honorees for the 2012 academic year, an increase of 134 student-athletes from the 3,236 named for the 2010-11 season.
