Kimberly Earns Academic All-District Honor

LEXINGTON, Va. — The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) released its 2013-14 Capital One Division III Academic All-District Men's Basketball squad on Thursday and Washington and Lee senior center Drew Kimberly (Fairfield, Conn./Fairfield Ludlowe) was selected to the five-member District 5 team.

A computer science and mathematics double major, Kimberly is averaging 13.1 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. He is leading the ODAC in field goal percentage at 62.4 (88-141). Kimberly has totaled five double-doubles this season, and has season-highs of 22 points and 14 rebounds.

Kimberly is the first W&L men's basketball player to receive the honor since Ben Goetsch garnered the recognition during the 2009-10 season. Kimberly will move onto the national ballot where he has a chance at earning Academic All-America honors.

The criteria for the Capital One Academic All-District program states that a player must be of sophomore academic standing, be a starter or important reserve and claim a GPA of at least a 3.30 on a 4.0 scale. Washington and Lee is a member of District 5, which includes players from Division III schools in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

The Generals are currently 5-13 overall and 2-7 in the ODAC. W&L hosts Bridgewater on Saturday at 2:00 pm.
