Virginia’s Devon Hall was named to the All-ACC Academic Team, according to an announcement released today by the ACC Commissioner, John Swofford. In order to be selected for the All-ACC Academic Team, players must secure at least a 3.0 grade point average over the previous semester, as well as maintaining a 3.0 throughout their entire career (woof!).

Hall, a redshirt junior for Tony Bennett and the Hoos, is currently pursuing his master’s degree in the professional development program at Virginia’s Curry School of Education (Devon already completed his undergraduate degree in media studies, because of course he did he’s amazing).
Play on the court is also taken into consideration for the creation of the team, and Hall is having a career season in points (8.9) and rebounds (4.3) while shooting his best ever 39% from three. In conference, his numbers are even more impressive, averaging just under 11 points and five rebounds per game. He has even adapted to play more of a “four” at times for the Hoos, who have been in need of a stronger presence in the post.
Hall has led Virginia in scoring five times this season and in rebounding eight times (or tied for the lead). Against NC State last Saturday, Hall put up a career-best 18 points as the Hoos rebounded from their four-game losing streak.
Congratulations to Devon, keeping up the tradition Malcolm Brogdon started of having a grad school ‘Hoo kicking ass all around Charlottesville!
