CoSIDA Academic All-District Team
ROCHESTER, Mich. – Oakland’s Sherron Dorsey-Walker has been named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Team, announced on Thursday. Dorsey-Walker becomes just the second men’s basketball player to earn this distinction in the Division I era (Max Hooper, 2016).
The 2016-17 CoSIDA Academic All-District™ Teams recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
Dorsey-Walker was one of five student-athletes to be honored in District 5, which includes universities in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
The senior guard has been a leader on the court and in the classroom, averaging 12.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game. Dorsey-Walker has recorded 13 double-digit performances, including a career-high 27 points against Oral Roberts earlier this season.
Dorsey-Walker ranks among the league’s best in Horizon League play in scoring (18th), rebounds (15th), assists (T6th), steals (T2nd), free throw percentage (T9th) and minutes played (8th).
Dorsey-Walker has always been committed to the classroom, graduating from Pershing High School as the class valedictorian. At Oakland he is a three-time Horizon League Academic Honor Roll selection and boasts one of the better GPAs on the team at 3.36 as an intergrative studies major.
First-team Academic All-District™ honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third team All-America® honorees will be selected later this month.
