HANOVER, IN - Senior basketball player Mike Case (Indianapolis, Ind./Southport) has been recognized as an academic all-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
Case, an integrative physiology and kinesiology major with a 3.88 grade-point average, was named to CoSIDA’s second team and was one of just 15 NCAA Division III players to receive all-American status.
The Capital One Academic All-American Team is selected by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performance on the floor and in the classroom. The all-American team is created from the top members from eight all-district squads named earlier in the month.
Case was joined on Capital One's second team by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Noel Hollingsworth and Jamie Karraker, Matt Johnson from the University of Chicago and Muhlenberg College’s Spencer Liddic.
He is a two-time academic all-district honoree.
On the court, Case is a two-time first-team all-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference honoree. He is only the eighth player in Hanover basketball history to record more than 1,300 career points and 700 rebounds. He currently ranks 15th in school history with 1,334 career points and is eighth overall with 740 rebounds.
Case has twice been named the HCAC’s player of the week this season. He ranks in the top five in the league in scoring, rebounding and field-goal percentage with 16.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game, while shooting 60.0 percent from the field (159-of-265).
