From Duke, Grayson Allen and Marvin Bagley make the ACC All Academic team. Allen has won it all four years. Bagley is nice to see, because every Duke fan knew he came in with a rep of being a proud student, and every non Duke fan who didn't bother to actually read much about his academic journey accused him of being some non-student. Coach Jeff Capel won it back in the day, too.

What about everyone else? Academic teams are actually something to be proud of for the kids, as silly as it sounds... to really still excel in your studies (which these kids are doing) while playing high level d1 basketball... well, that's better than I did I college!:)

So Bagley made it, but the guy who was deciding between Duke and Harvard did not. Interesting.

There are 30 freakin' guys on the All-ACC academic team. Kind of waters down the "honor" when there are that many, don't you think? Saw that Maye is the only ACC player to make All-District and he only carries a 3.45 GPA in business administration. That's not even good enough to graduate cum laude.

Probably need to see class lists before tooting horns. Frosh with garbage majors and limited hours.

There is literally nothing impressive about graduating cum laude. Summa cum laude is impressive. Cum laude is ordinary.
I didn't say it was impressive, did I? What percentage of college grads do you think graduate with a 3.5 or higher? It's certainly not an ordinary amount, I can tell you that. However, my point was even the ACC's scholar of all scholars got an award based on a GPA that wouldn't even qualify for "ordinary" honors.

Did I say you said it was impressive?

I'm more impressed when our guys major in something outside of a liberal arts discipline. Matt Christensen (Civil Engineering), Nick Horvath (Physics), and Trajan Langdon (Mathematics) are a few that come to mind.... surprised that Ben Lammers didn't make this list. He's been touted quite a few teams on national television.

Yes, getting outstanding grades in majors like that is much more impressive for sure. An upperclassman with a 3.0 in anything like that >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> a 4.0 in business admin, hospitality management, communication, sports admin, etc.... the typical "jock" majors.
