Staten Earns All-American Honors

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (April 3, 2015) – WVU co-captain Juwan Staten has been named a Senior CLASS Award Second Team All-American for Division I men’s basketball. Chosen by a nationwide vote of Division I men’s basketball coaches, national basketball media and fans, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: classroom, community, character and competition.

An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities. Staten, who was named to the All-Big 12 Conference First Team for the second year in a row, averaged 14.2 points per game and led the Mountaineers with 139 assists. The Mountaineers finished 25-10 and earned an NCAA Sweet 16 appearance. Senior CLASS Award First-Team All-Americans
