The NDSU women’s basketball team took 16th place in the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Academic Top 25 for the 2011-12 season. The team compiled a 3.402 grade-point average led by Capital One Academic All-America third team selection Janae Burich.
“Winners succeed in all aspects of their daily life; and this is a great accomplishment for our players who strive to do well through the rigors of being a student-athlete,” said Carolyn DeHoff, NDSU head women’s basketball coach.
“We are proud of our players and understand the commitment they make on and off the court. We want to congratulate our players and our academic support staff who assist in their success,” DeHoff said.
NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
