Notre Dame’s two basketball programs had a combined 13 players land on their respective ACC All-Academic teams Thursday. The men’s team had six honorees, tied for the most in the league, and the women had seven.
Freshman guard JJ Starling, freshman forward Ven-Allen Lubin, grad student forward Nate Laszewski (business analytics), grad student guard Cormac Ryan (strategy), grad student guard Marcus Hammond (nonprofit administration) and grad student guard Trey Wertz (business analytics) were the men’s honorees. This year is Ryan and Laszewski’s second appearance on the all-academic team.
Lubin is the only one of those six on the Irish’s 2023-24 roster. Starling transferred to Syracuse, and the others are out of eligibility.
Grad student guard Jenna Brown (non-degree seeking), sophomore guard Sonia Citron (management consulting), grad student forward Lauren Ebo (management), grad student guard Dara Mabrey (nonprofit administration), junior forward Nat Marshall (political science), sophomore guard Olivia Miles (political science) and junior forward Kylee Watson (film, television, theater) were the women’s all-academic selections.
This year is Mabrey’s fifth on the ACC All-Academic team. Citron and Miles made it for the second time.
To be selected, players must have had at least a 3.0 grade point average the prior semester, own a 3.0 cumulative GPA and appeared in at least 50 percent of a team’s games that season.
