Jan. 30, 2014
RALEIGH, N.C. – Kody Burke of the No. 18 NC State women’s basketball team (18-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) has earned Capital One Academic All-District honors, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced on Thursday afternoon.
Burke, a two-time Academic All-American with a 3.93 GPA in Business Administration, earned the honor as one of six NCAA Division I student-athletes to represent District Three, a region which includes North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. The Northridge, Calif., native has the highest GPA among the five other Division I student-athletes selected to the team.
The senior is in the final year of a stellar career with the Wolfpack. Within NC State’s record books, Burke ranks third with 183 career blocks, 10th with 751 career rebounds, 17th with 1,423 career points scored, and just outside of the program’s top 10 with 120 games played.
Kody’s senior season has been her most productive, as she is currently averaging 15.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game while shooting 47.9 percent from the field. She has scored in double figures in 18 of State’s 21 games this season while frequently leading the team in points (seven times) and rebounding (seven times).
Burke and No. 18 NC State return to action this evening against No. 8 Maryland. Tip-off between the Wolfpack and Terrapins is scheduled for 7 p.m. from Kay Yow Court within Reynolds Coliseum.
