  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (July 27, 2012) – Rutgers University boasted 243 student-athletes on the BIG EAST All-Academic Team, the conference announced Friday. Nineteen (19) RU teams were represented on the list for the 2011-12 academic year. 

    Men’s lacrosse and women’s rowing led the way for RU, each placing 23 members on the conference all-academic team. Men’s basketball (seven) and women’s basketball (six) were also well represented. Also notable were the women’s track and field (22), men’s track and field (22), women’s soccer (20), swimming and diving (20), field hockey (17), men’s soccer (16) and women’s lacrosse (16) squads.

    Nominations for the All-Academic Team are submitted by each of the BIG EAST’s 16 member institutions. To be eligible for the honor, a nominee must have competed in a BIG EAST-sponsored sport, earned a varsity letter, attained a minimum grade-point average of 3.00 for the preceding academic year, and completed a minimum of two consecutive semesters or three consecutive quarters of academic work, with a total of 18 semester or 27 quarter credits, not including remedial courses.

    The nominations are reviewed and approved by the BIG EAST Academic Affairs Committee. There are 3,370  honorees for the 2012 academic year, an increase of 134 student-athletes from the 3,236 named for the 2010-11 season. Rutgers upped its numbers by 26 student-athletes.
