Brandon Alston Named to ACC All-Academic Team

Greensboro, N.C. – Brandon Alston, a graduate student-athlete on Georgia Tech’s basketball team, has been named to the annual All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Men’s Basketball team, as announced Friday by Commissioner John Swofford. It is the second time Alston has been recognized.

The Vienna, Va., native, who is a senior in terms of athletic eligibility, has played in 25 games, starting five, for the Yellow Jackets this season. He has been Tech’s fourth-leading scorer at 7.3 points per game while shooting 46.5 percent from the floor and a team-leading 38.9 percent from three-point range. The 6-5 guard also leads the Jackets in free throw shooting at 83.7 percent, having made his last 12 in a row and 22 of his last 23.

He is completing his coursework for a Master’s degree in economics this semester. He earned a bachelor’s degree in economics at Lehigh in 2017.

North Carolina senior Luke Maye has been named the recipient of the ACC’s Skip Prosser Award for the second consecutive year and headlines the 2018-19 All-ACC Academic team.

Minimum academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.

The ACC Honor Roll, which recognizes all conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year, will be released in July.
