STANFORD, Calif.- In addition to compiling the most wins of any Pac-12 team this year, Stanford was also represented with a conference-best eight players named to the 2011-12 Pac-12 All-Academic team, as announced today by Commissioner Larry Scott.
For the third consecutive season, Stanford had the most selections of any conference school. Stanford's four selections among the first and second teams were the program's most since the 2004-05 campaign, when five Cardinal players accounted for the top 10 spots.
Jack Trotter and John Gage were named to the first team, Josh Owens and Andrew Zimmermann were appointed to the second team while Anthony Brown, Josh Huestis, Stefan Nastic and Dwight Powell earned honorable mention accolades.
To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant contributor.
Trotter is a three-time recipient, earning first-team honors for the second straight year after receiving second-team honors as a sophomore.
Owens also earned second-team honors last year while Zimmermann garnered honorable mention accolades as a junior.
Gage, Brown, Huestis, Nastic and Powell were all honored for the first time in their careers.
