Mens Basketball: Carl English honored

The UH guard is named to both the Verizon Academic All-District VIII and the NABC All-District 13 second team.

University of Hawai'i guard Carl English was named to both the Verizon Academic All-District VIII and the NABC All-District 13 second team, Wednesday.

The junior qualified for the five-member Academic All-District 13 team with a 3.28 grade point average in liberal studies. The team was voted on by CoSIDA members within the District VIII states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawai'i, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington, and the provinces of British Columbia and Yukon. The all-district selections advance to the national ballot; the Verizon Academic All-America team which will be announced March 5.

For the second consecutive year, a UH student-athlete was recognized on the NABC All-District 13 Team. Last season, guard Predrag Savovic was named to the first team. English becomes just the sixth player in UH history to earn All-District 13 honors. Coaches in the Big West, Mountain West, and Western Athletic conferences vote in the District 13 ballot.

English currently leads the Western Athletic Conference in scoring, averaging 20.0 points per game. Earlier this season, the two-time WAC player of the week became the 10th player in UH history to score 1,000 career points. English was also named one of 50 players, at the start of the season, to the John R. Wooden Award Preseason All-America team.
