More than three dozen University of Connecticut student-athletes from the field hockey and women’s lacrosse teams earned spots on the Big East All-Academic Team to close out the 2016-17 season, the league announced.
The 2,501 student-athletes in the 2016-17 league’s class are the most honorees in the four years since the Big East Conference realignment.
To be eligible for the honor, a nominee must have competed in a Big East-sponsored sport, 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 semesters or 27 quarter credits, not including remedial courses.
