GREENSBORO, N.C. — A pair of three-time All-Academic team selections – Virginia’s Jerome Meyinsse and Duke’s Brian Zoubek – headline the 2010 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Men’s Basketball Team, as announced today by Commissioner John Swofford.
To be eligible for consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.
Meyinsse, coming off a career-high 21-point effort against Duke Sunday, is averaging 5.7 points, 4.1 rebounds while starting 19 games. In addition, the Baton Rouge, La., senior is shooting .531 from the floor and .737 from the free throw line and is tied for the team lead in blocked shots with 19.
Zoubek has had two double-doubles and three games with 11-or-more rebounds in his last five outings. The Haddonfield, N.J., senior has started each of the last five games for the fourth-ranked Blue Devils and is averaging 5.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game and has blocked 22 shots in 29 games.
In addition to Meyinsse and Zoubek, Clemson’s Tanner Smith and North Carolina’s Tyler Zeller are repeaters from last year’s All-Academic team.
