Laurie McNamara and Megan Murphy have been named to the 2012 Conference USA All-Academic Volleyball Team, as selected by the league's Sports Information Directors. McNamara is a repeat selection, while Murphy makes her first appearance on an All-Academic team. The Owls' two selections are tied for the most in the league.
McNamara, a Second Team All-Conference USA selection, was named to the Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-District squad last week. She was a unanimous selection to the C-USA All-Academic team. The senior from Brown College has a 3.95 GPA in Sport Management.
Murphy, named C-USA Setter of the Year yesterday, joins McNamara on the All-Academic team. The redshirt junior from Duncan College leads C-USA in assists, and holds a 3.37 GPA in economics and kinesiology.
The Owls begin the C-USA Tournament on Friday, November 16 at 5 p.m. as they take on No. 7 seed Houston in Tulsa, Okla.
