The Big Ten Conference announced today the 24 student-athletes named Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winners for the 2012-13 academic year. These individuals were chosen from a group of over 300 student-athletes honored throughout the academic year who had displayed positive sportsmanship.

One member of each varsity sports team on every campus was chosen by his or her institution as a Sportsmanship Award honoree. From each university’s list, two Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winners were then selected. All of the Sportsmanship Award honorees have distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and ethical behavior. In addition, these student-athletes must be in good academic standing and must have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition setting.

Golden Gophers' Andre Hollins (So., Basketball) and Allie Phillips (Sr., Soccer) were the Minnesota honorees.
