TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Alabama men's basketball junior guard Levi Randolph has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District 4 First Team as selected by College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), the organization announced on Thursday.
With the nod, Randolph becomes the first Alabama player in program history to earn academic all-district first team honors in back-to-back seasons. He is now eligible for Academic All-America honors, which will be chosen in February.
A native of Madison, Ala., Randolph maintains a 3.45 GPA as a marketing major and has been named to the Dean's List in three out of four semesters (3.1 GPA or better). He is a two-time SEC Academic Honor Roll recipient and is on pace to earn his undergraduate degree in August of 2014.
On the court, the 6-5, 205-pound guard has been equally as impressive. Coming into Thursday night's game at Auburn, Randolph is second on the team in rebounding (4.2 rpg), third in scoring (9.6 ppg), steals (14) and minutes (30.9 mpg) and fourth in assists (1.7 apg). He has played in 88 consecutive games since stepping foot on campus.
Randolph joins Florida's Patric Young, Mercer's Jakob Gollon, Stetson's Hunter Miller, Florida Atlantic's Justin Raffington and Coastal Carolina's Michael Enanga on the Academic All-District 4 First Team.
The Academic All-District® teams include the student-athletes listed and are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. This is the second year of the expanded Academic All-America® program as CoSIDA moved from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non Division I) and has doubled the number of scholar-athletes honored. The expanded teams include NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools.
