    INDIANAPOLIS - NC State women's basketball standout Marissa Kastanek has earned a sports postgraduate scholarship from the NCAA. She is among 29 male and 29 female winter sports student-athletes that will receive $7,500.

    A first team All-ACC selection as a senior in 2012-13, Kastanek earned a postgraduate scholarship from the ACC earlier this spring, and was a two-time Academic All-American during her Wolfpack career. On the court, she finished in the top 10 in NC State history in career scoring with more than 1,650 points.

    To qualify, student-athletes must excel academically and athletically, be in their final year of eligibility and plan to pursue graduate study. Student-athletes must also maintain at least a 3.2 grade-point average and be nominated by their institution’s faculty athletics representative.

    Similar awards are given each season to fall and spring student-athletes, totaling 174 individual winners. Created in 1964, the NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships promote and encourage education by rewarding the Association’s most accomplished student-athletes.
