Wildcats Make SEC Winter Academic Honor Roll

Congratulations to the 61 UK winter sport athletes that made the SEC Winter Academic Honor Roll this year. The Cats had the 4th most honorees on the honor roll in the SEC, following a second place finish in fall sports. Making this honor roll requires a 3.0 GPA from the 2013 school year, so obviously freshman athletes can’t make an appearance (I’m talking to you Julius Randle, who might have gotten an A on his last speech in COM 287).

Kentucky had five representatives from the men’s basketball team featuring Tod Lanter, Brian Long, Sam Malone, Jarrod Polson and Alex Poythress. The women’s team had six representatives, while men’s and women’s swimming and diving are clearly the smartest people on campus with 32 total representatives.

And people said we just cared about sports….

To view the complete list go here.

      OOHH..so THAT’S what it’s like to be a Hater.

      Are your really so miserable in life that you have to denigrate a bunch of fine young men? So what they have good grades, which blue chip school did you play ball for and how many NBA stars did you become brothers with?

      Yeah…that’s what I thought.

      Football is considered a fall sport, not a winter sport, so kinda hard to make the winter list!

    Does that mean no other players got a 3.0 or better? Is that how it works?

    I think ONLY scholly players (JP & AP) should count for teams APR. Otherwise, why not fill the bench with walk-on nerds and REALLY have a high GPA?
