                MUNCIE, Ind. - Ball State sophomore forward Matt Kamieniecki (Clarkston, Mich./Clarkston) has been named to the five-member Academic All-Mid-American Conference Team, as voted by faculty athletic representatives at MAC institutions. Kamieniecki is the first Cardinal to earn Academic All-MAC honors since Dennis Trammell and Matt McCollom were named to the team in 2005.

                Kamieniecki boasts the second-highest GPA on the Academic All-MAC team, posting a 3.568 mark in business. He played in all 24 games in which he was healthy, battling through a back injury and a concussion. He made 10 starts on the year as the team's top reserve forward while connecting on 48.8 percent (21-of-43) from the field in 12.9 minutes per game.

                Joining Kamieniecki on the Academic All-MAC team is Akron's Brian Walsh, Buffalo's Tony Watson, Toledo's Rian Pearson and Western Michigan's Brandon Pokley.

The Academic All-MAC honor is for a student-athlete who has excelled in athletics and academics. To qualify, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.20 cumulative GPA and have participated in at least 50 percent of the contests for that particular sport. First-year students and junior college transfers in their first year of residence are not eligible for the award.
