March 2, 2005


DALLAS – Kansas seniors Aaron Miles and Michael Lee and junior Christian Moody were named to the 2005 Men’s Basketball Academic All-Big 12 team, the league announced Wednesday.

Miles and Moody were among the 12-member first team selections, which requirements include maintaining a 3.2 grade point average or better either the last two semesters or cumulative and participating in 60 percent of this year’s games. Lee was a second-team selection for maintaining a GPA between 3.0 and 3.2.

Moody and Miles are repeat honorees from last season. Lee is on the squad for the first time in his career.
