Four Seminoles Named to 2017-18 All-ACC Academic Team

GREENSBORO, N.C. ( – For the third consecutive year, the Florida State Women’s Basketball team has either led or tied the conference for the most All-ACC Academic Team selections.

The 2017-18 All-ACC Academic Team includes a program-record tying four Seminoles – seniors Chatrice White (Family and Child Sciences), Ama Degbeon (Biological Science), Imani Wright (African American Studies) and AJ Alix (Criminology).

“I am very proud to coach young women who put such a high value on academic excellence,” FSU head coach Sue Semrau said. “Our representation on the All-ACC Academic Team for the third consecutive year puts us on top of the conference once again. It’s a credit to both our student-athletes and the academic support they receive at Florida State.”

For the second straight season, Florida State and Duke have tied for the most selections in the ACC. FSU’s four All-ACC Academic Team members tie for the most in program history, equaling last year’s group of Brittany Brown, Leticia Romero, Ivey Slaughter and White.

In 2006, Seminoles Ganiyat Adeduntan, Alicia “Ice” Gladden, Holly Johnson and LaQuinta Neely also made up a four-member All-ACC Academic Team for FSU.

In her second season at Florida State, White earned her second nod to the All-ACC Academic Team, while Degbeon, Wright and Alix are each first-time members.

Minimum academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.

The ACC Honor Roll, which recognizes all conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year, will be released in July.
