WVU Women's Basketball

The Big 12 Conference announced that six members of the West Virginia women’s basketball team have earned Academic All-Big 12 honors for the 2020 season.

Seniors Tynice Martin, Lucky Rudd and De’Janae Boykin, sophomore Kari Niblack and redshirt freshman Rochelle Norris all earned first team honors, while sophomore Madisen Smith earned honors for the second team.

The Mountaineers’ six selections are the second-highest in the Big 12, and is tied for the most in program history with last year’s six selections.

Martin and Rudd make the Academic All-Big 12 first team for the second year in a row, while Niblack, Norris and Boykin receive the honor for the first time — with Boykin making it as one of four student-athletes in the Big 12 with a 4.0 grade point average.

To become a member of the Academic All-Big 12 teams, student-athletes must maintain a 3.20 grade point average or higher for the first team and 3.00 to 3.19 for the second team. Student-athletes qualify with either a 3.0 cumulative GPA, or having such a GPA over the previous two semesters.
