TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Andrew Wilson, who has earned his bachelor’s degree and who is nearing the completion of his master’s degree, has been named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Basketball Team for the second consecutive season it was announced by the league office. The sport management master’s degree candidate was one of 10 players – and one of only three repeat honorees from the 2004-05 season – named to the team by ACC Commissioner John Swofford.
In addition to being named to the All-ACC Academic Basketball Team, Wilson was named to the ACC Academic Honor Roll for the fourth time during the first five years of his Seminole athletic and academic career. Wilson will become the first player in ACC men’s basketball history to play at least one game in six seasons when he plays for Florida State during the upcoming 2005-06 season.
Wilson has continued the basketball team’s outstanding academic tradition under fourth-year Head Coach Leonard Hamilton. During the first three-years of Hamilton’s tenure at Florida State, 100 percent (12 of 12) of the graduation-eligible seniors have earned their degrees. Adam Waleskowski and Anthony Richardson, seniors who finished their careers at the end of the 2004-05 season, earned their bachelor’s degrees and participated in graduation ceremonies this past spring (Waleskowski) and summer (Richardson), respectively.
Wilson averaged 3.5 points and 2.3 rebounds while ranking third on the team with 27 3-point field goals made for the Seminoles during the 2004-05 season. He established career-bests for games started (28), 3-point field goals attempted (76), offensive rebounds (29), defensive rebounds (42), total rebounds (71) and rebounds per game (2.3) while tying his single-season career highs for assists (27), minutes played (652) and minutes played per game (21.0) during the season.
Wilson’s first game played during the 2005-06 season will be the 100th game of his career making him one of only 30 players in school history to play in 100 or more career games. The school record for games played in a career is 122 and is held by Rodney Dobard (1990-93) and Adam Waleskowksi (2002-05).
