ROSEMONT, Ill. - The Big Ten Conference on Wednesday recognized a total of 676 winter sports student-athletes on Wednesday, naming them to the 2014 Winter Academic All-Big Ten team. The Boilermakers earned 43 spots on the list, including 31 members of the men's and women's swimming and diving teams.


To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection, student-athletes must be letterwinners who are in at least their second academic year at their institution and carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher. Purdue women's basketball sophomore Hayden Hamby was one of just nine athletes, conference-wide, to post a flawless 4.0 grade point average.


Boilermakers Michelle Cabassol and MacKenzie Tweardy headline the list of academic honorees, also securing All-America honors at the NCAA Women's Swimming and Diving Championships last weekend in Minneapolis. Cabassol took home fourth in the championship three-meter dive and second in the consolation one-meter dive, while Tweardy was eighth in the championship final of the platform diving competition.


On the men's side, Jamie Bissett and Matt Friede are both set to compete at the NCAA Championships this weekend in Austin, Texas, as Bissett is one of four Boilermaker divers to qualify, while Friede will compete with the freestyle-relay teams.


Purdue women's basketball senior Courtney Moses was also a unanimous First Team All-Big Ten selection and broke the Boilermakers' career three-point field goal record. She finished her career with 240 triples as she led Purdue to its fourth straight 20-win season and an NCAA Tournament Second Round appearance. She also was named to the 2014 WBCA/Allstate Good Works Team and was a semifinalist for the Wooden Citizenship Cup Award.
