Michigan basketball senior Zack Novak earns another academic honor
Zack Novak has turned heads for the third year in a row with his work in the classroom.
On Thursday, the Michigan basketball senior captain earned a Capital One Academic All-District V honor for a third consecutive season.
A business major at Michigan, Novak was joined on the team by Loyola's Ben Averkamp, Ohio State's Aaron Craft, Northwestern's Drew Crawford and Butler's Ronald Nored.
Novak, who is also a finalist for the 2012 Lowe's Senior CLASS Award, is averaging 9.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.9 assists this season for No. 23 Michigan (17-6, 7-3 Big Ten).
Along with his fellow honorees, Novak is eligible for nomination to the national Capital One Academic All-American team. Selections for the national awards will be made later in February.
With eight games to play, Novak ranks fourth on Michigan's 3-point field goals list, and is 20 points away from 1,000-point barrier for his career.
