Congratulations to Louisville’s Ray Spalding, V.J. King, Jordan Nwora and Deng Adel on being among those named to the ACC’s All-Academic team on Wednesday.
This was the third All-Academic selection for both Adel and Spalding, and the second straight for King. To be eligible for consideration to the All-ACC Academic team, 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.
The All-ACC Academic Team includes three of the five and six of the league’s top 15 scorers – Duke’s Marvin Bagley III (20.7), Syracuse’s Tyus Battle (19.8), Maye (17.9), Duke’s Grayson Allen (15.5), Adel (15.3) and NC State Allerik Freeman (15.1).
