Steeves Named to CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team

Feb. 22, 2018

WASHINGTON -- Graduate student Patrick Steeves from the GW men’s basketball team has been selected to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District First Team, the organization announced Thursday.

The lone Atlantic 10 honoree and one of just 41 NCAA Division I student-athletes across eight regions voted to a first team, Steeves is joined on the District 2 team by Jalen Brunson of Villanova, Jevon Carter of West Virginia, Scott Meredith of Saint Francis and Joe Sherburne of UMBC. He now advances to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team ballot, with first, second and third team honorees set to be announced in March.

Steeves, who is working towards a master’s of science in business analytics at GW, holds a 3.96 GPA. He earned his undergraduate degree from Harvard, where he majored in applied mathematics and achieved a 3.71 GPA. Last season, he was named to the A-10 All-Academic Team and he has earned a spot on GW Athletics Academic Dean’s List in each of his three semesters.

Steeves is enjoying his best season on the court while maintaining his high academic marks. He has started 27 games and has career-high marks in scoring (10.5 ppg), rebounding (5.4 rpg) and field goal percentage (.538). After scoring in double figures eight times all of last season, he’s done it 13 times this year, including three 20-point games and one double-double.

He is GW men's basketball's first Academic All-District selection since John Kopriva in 2015 and will look to become the 11th student-athlete in program history to earn All-America recognition.
