Kyle Sturdivant Named to All-ACC Academic Team

Greensboro, N.C. – Georgia Tech sophomore Kyle Sturdivant has been named to the 2020-21 All-ACC Academic Men’s Basketball team, the conference announced Tuesday.

A Dean’s List student in the fall semester of 2020, his first at Georgia Tech after transferring from Southern California, Sturdivant carries a 3.06 GPA in business administration. The 6-2 guard from Norcross, Ga., has played in every game for the Yellow Jackets this season, averaging 3.4 points with a 25/15 assist/turnover ratio.

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.

Clemson senior forward Aamir Simms was selected as the recipient of the ACC’s Skip Prosser Award and headlines the 2020-21 All-ACC Academic Men’s Basketball Team. The Skip Prosser Award is presented annually to the top scholar-athlete in ACC men’s basketball.

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.

Tech opens play in the New York Life ACC Tournament at 2:30 p.m. Thursday against either No. 5-seed Clemson, Pittsburgh or Miami in the quarterfinal round. The game will be televised on ESPN or ESPN2.
