Via UNC and the ACC:
North Carolina's Marcus Paige, a second-team CoSIDA Academic All-America selection, headlines the 2014 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Men's Basketball team, as announced today by Commissioner John Swofford. Paige earns the honor for the second year in a row.
To be eligible for consideration, 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.
Paige, a four-time ACC Player of the Week recipient for the 14th-ranked Tar Heels, has scored 10 or more points in all but five games this season and is currently sixth in the ACC in scoring (16.9), tied for fourth in assists (4.5), second in free throw percentage (.880) and fifth in three-point field goal percentage (.391).
Needless to say, Marcus Paige continues to be a great representative of North Carolina on and off the court.
