GW's Mikic Repeats on A-10 Men's Basketball All-Academic Team
Junior Joins Alumni Mescheriakov and Koul as Multiple Time A-10 All-Academic Picks
March 12, 2013
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington men's basketball junior Nemanja Mikic was named to the Atlantic 10 All-Academic Team for the second straight season, the league announced on Tuesday.
Mikic is the third GW player to receive the honor multiple times, joining three-time recipients Yegor Mescheriakov (1997-99) and Alexander Koul (1996-98). His selection also marks the program's 13th All-Academic pick since the award debuted in 1991, tying GW with St. Bonaventure for the most in conference history.
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, who hails from Novi Sad, Serbia, is set to complete his undergraduate degree in just three years and earned CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District 2 honors in February. He has been named to the A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll with a grade-point average of at least 3.5 in four of his five semesters at GW, as well as all five semesters on the GW Athletics Academic Dean's List with a 3.0+ GPA.
Mikic leads GW with 23 three-pointers while averaging 3.3 points and 13.2 minutes in 29 games this season.
GW (13-16) heads to Brooklyn, N.Y., this week for the 2013 A-10 Championship at the Barclays Center. The 11th-seeded Colonials face No. 6 seed Massachusetts in the first round on Thursday at 9:00 p.m. The contest will be televised on NBC Sports Network and broadcast on FederalNewsRadio.com and 1500/820/1050 AM.
