GW Men's Basketball's Mikic Named to A-10 All-Academic Team
Sophomore Becomes Program's 12th All-Academic Selection, Second-Most in League History
March 5, 2012
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington men's basketball sophomore forward Nemanja Mikic was named to the Atlantic 10 Conference All-Academic Team on Monday. Mikic is the 12th Colonials men's basketball player to earn the accolade since it was first awarded in 1991.
Mikic joins the likes of three-time recipients Yegor Mescheriakov (1997-99) and Alexander Koul (1996-98), as well as Alex Kireev (2004), Omo Moses (1993), Eric Withers (1992), Byron Hopkins (1991) and Rodney Patterson (1991) as GW players to earn All-Academic Team honors. GW is now the second-most decorated A-10 program in the category, trailing only St. Bonaventure's 13 selections. To be nominated for the A-10 All-Academic Team, a player must be a starter or important reserve and have a cumulative 3.0 grade-point average or better (on a 4.0 scale) for his entire academic career.
Mikic, a business administration major from Novi Sad, Serbia, has been named to the A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll with a grade-point average of at least 3.5 in two of his three semesters at GW, and also earned a spot on the GW Athletic Academic Dean's List last month.
Mikic has connected on a team-best 50 three-pointers and is fourth on the team with 7.8 points per game through 30 contests for GW (10-20), which travels to Dayton (19-11) on Tuesday in the first round of the 2012 Atlantic 10 Championship. He has scored in double figures eight times, including season-high 19-point performances against Charlotte and Xavier, and had three-or-more three pointers in a game 10 times.
