The University of Minnesota women's basketball team continued to prove its commitment to excellence in the classroom by having five student-athletes named to the Winter Academic All-Big Ten Team, as announced by the league office Wednesday.
To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection, student-athletes must be letterwinners in at least their second academic year at their institution and carry a career grade-point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better.
During head coach Pam Borton's 11 seasons, the Maroon and Gold has totaled 74 Academic All-Big Ten honorees, which is the most of any Big Ten Conference women's basketball program, and the Gophers have also earned a 3.0 in every year of Borton's coaching tenure.
