Marcus Ruh Named to Capital One Academic All-District Team

SAINT LEO, Fla. – Marcus Ruh, the on-court leader for the Saint Leo men's basketball team, is also making a name for himself off the hardwood as he has been named to the Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-District team it was announced by CoSIDA representatives earlier this week.

Ruh, a perfect 4.0 student in the field of Business Administration, is the Lions' leading scorer and has propelled the 15-4 squad to the top two spots in the Sunshine State Conference.  Already earning Conference Player of the Week honors this season, the reigning First-Team All-SSC and the 2011-12 All-Newcomer team member was also named to the All-SSC Tournament Team last season.  The Green Bay, Wisc. native picked up where he left off last year as he helped the Lions crack the NABC Top-25 and also eclipsed the 1,000-point plateau.

In order to be eligible for the Academic All-District team honors, a student-athlete must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.30 and be at least a sophomore in eligibility and be a starter or key player on the team.

The Capital One Division II and III Academic All-America® program is being financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures, to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2012-13 DII and DIII Academic All-America® teams program.

First-team Academic All-District ® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
