Student-athletes are nominated by current CoSIDA members—usually an institution's Sports Information Director— and must carry at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (GPA). Nominated student-athletes must also be of sophomore athletic eligibility and be significant contributors to the success of their team.
Off the court, Lemke, has a 3.94 GPA, is a chemistry major and was named to the 2016-17 South Atlantic Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll.
On the court, the senior from Elliminyt, Australia has been a key contributor for the Cobras, averaging 3.4 points per game while pulling down 2.3 rebounds per game.
Lemke will advance to the Academic All-America® national ballot. District III (college division) includes NCAA Division II schools from the Conference Carolinas, the Peach Belt Conference and the South Atlantic Conference. The members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (by districts) select the Academic All-District™ men's basketball teams.
