>>> FULL TEAM

TOWSON, Md. – Junior Shanteona Keys (Roswell, Ga.) of the Georgia College women's basketball team was selected today to the Division II Capital One Academic All-America Second Team. The only Academic All-American in Bobcats women's basketball history, Keys is being honored for both her work in the classroom and on the court in consecutive seasons after making the Third Team last season. 

Keys, a mass communication major, shared the highest grade-point average (GPA) of all Division II selections with a 4.0 and had the highest of any Second Team selection. She is the lone Peach Belt Conference (PBC) representative. 

Joining Keys on the Second Team are another junior, two seniors, and one graduate student. In addition to Keys, the team is comprised of senior Katie Benson (Seattle Pacific University), junior Megan Fogt (Hillsdale College), senior Jen Papich (Gannon University), and graduate student Ariel Marsh (California State Polytechnic University - Pomona). 

Only a junior, Keys already ranks prominently in three Georgia College top-10 all-time categories. She is currently No. 6 in scoring with 1,191 points, No. 5 in free-throws made at 249, and No. 9 in three-point shots with 128. 

The Bobcats take to the court tonight hosting Clayton State University  at 5:30 p.m.
