Creighton senior Kaleb Korver is one of 10 men that has been named to the 2010-11 National Jesuit All-Academic Men's Basketball Team. The team was announced today by the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities and the Jesuit Basketball Spotlight.

Scranton’s Zach Ashworth, a first-team College Division Academic All-American, leads a group of six student-athletes named to the 2010-2011 National Jesuit All-Academic Men’s Basketball Team. He is joined on the Jesuit All-Academic squad by Chris Johansen (Regis, Jr., G, Albuquerque, N.M.); Andrew Keister (Holy Cross, Sr., C, Galloway, NJ); Greg Logins (Canisius, Sr., F, Sodus, NY); Ryan Olander (Fairfield, Jr., F, Mansfield, Conn.); and Marc Trasolini (Santa Clara, Jr., F, Vancouver, BC).

Korver joined three others – Julius Coles of Canisius, Brian Conklin of Saint Louis and Nick Leon of Saint Peter’s – to earn honorable mention recognition.

Korver averaged 4.3 points, 3.1 assists and 2.3 assists per game during his recently completed senior season. He started all 39 games, tied for the team lead with 47 three-pointers and was second with 91 assists. Creighton finished 23-16, winning four postseason games and reaching the championship series of the College Basketball Invitational. He was also named to the Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete Second Team and honored by the National I-AAA Athletic Directors Association Scholar-Athlete Team.

The Jesuit All-Academic Team represents student-athletes from the 28 Jesuit colleges spread across the United States that play basketball on all three levels of the NCAA and also in the NAIA.  They share the mission of Jesuit education, founded nearly 500 years ago under the principles of St. Ignatius Loyola to educate young people to become men and women dedicated to service and compassionate leadership.  Students at Jesuit colleges have long excelled in the classroom and in the community, but they also have played a major role in collegiate basketball in the last 100 years.
