Indiana was among the Big Ten leaders with four academic all-conference selections, the league announced on Wednesday. Here’s the full release from IU Athletics:
The Big Ten Conference on Wednesday recognized four members of the Indiana University men’s basketball team on its 2013-14 Academic All-Conference team. Senior Jeff Howard, senior Taylor Wayer, sophomore Jonny Marlin and sophomore Peter Jurkin were honored. Since 2010, IU has been represented 27 times, which is tied with Northwestern for the most in the league during that span.
The list of honored student-athletes features 34 men’s basketball players from the 12 member schools. To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection, student-athletes must be letterwinners who are in at least their second academic year at their institution and carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.
Indiana’s season ended on Thursday with a 64-54 loss to Illinois in the opening round of the NCAA tournament.
Podcast on the Brink is back with host Jerod Morris of The Assembly Call to dissect how an IU team ranked No. 24 in the preseason could miss out on postseason play entirely. Morris is joined by Zach Osterman, the Indiana beat writer for The Indianapolis Star, to discuss a variety of topics, including:

· Noah Vonleh’s future
· Indiana’s outlook for the 2014-2015 season
