IRVING, Texas – Senior guard Angel Goodrich was named to the 2013 Academic All-Big 12 Women’s Basketball Team for the fourth-straight season, including the last two years as a first-team honoree, as announced by the league office Tuesday.
Goodrich leads the Big 12 with 66 steals and ranks third in the conference with assists (141). She is second on the team in scoring with 13.2 points per game and a team best 35.5 minutes per contest. Goodrich is also 20 assists shy of becoming the school’s all-time career leader.
The Big 12 Conference office named 35 student-athletes to the Academic Big 12 Team, 26 of which, along with Goodrich, were first-team recipients. First-team members consist of those who have maintained a 3.20 or better grade-point average (GPA).
To qualify, student-athletes must maintain a 3.00 GPA or higher (either cumulative or the two previous semesters) and must have participated in 60 percent of their team’s scheduled contests. Freshmen and transfers are not eligible in their first year of academic residence. Senior student-athletes who have participated for a minimum of two years and meet all the criteria except percent of participation are also eligible.
Goodrich and the Jayhawks will be in action Wednesday night, when Kansas plays at TCU for a 7 p.m., Big 12 Conference match-up.
