Congratulations to the 68 student-athletes from the University of Kentucky who were named to the Southeastern Conference’s Winter Sports Academic Honor Roll today. UK placed third in the league for the most student-athletes earning a spot on the honor roll.
The most notable are the three from John Calipari’s UK basketball team: Jonny David (exercise science), Dillon Pulliam (computer engineering) and Brad Calipari (marketing). Pulliam will graduate this spring and will pursue a master’s degree at Carnegie Mellon.
The UK women’s basketball team had seven representatives in Makenzie Cann, Jessica Hardin, Maci Morris, Taylor Murray, Paige Poffenberger, Alyssa Rice and Jaida Roper.
The SEC academic honor roll is based on grades from the 2017 spring, summer and fall terms. Among other qualifications, student-athletes must have a 3.0 grade-point average to be on the honor roll.
