ASHEVILLE, N.C. - UNC Asheville guard Grace Blaylock is one of 21 winners of the ninth annual Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association Scholar-Athlete Teams that was announced today by the Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association (DI-AAA ADA) on Friday.

Blaylock was one of 10 women's basketball players to be selected to the Women's Scholar-Athlete Team.  She has a 3.86 GPA and is majoring in Health & Wellness.

Basketball players from all Division I-AAA ADA member institutions are eligible for these prestigious teams. Each of the nominees was required to have a minimum grade point average of 3.20 (on a 4.00 scale) in undergraduate study and have been a starter or important reserve with legitimate athletics credentials.

"The Division I-AAA ADA wants to extend its congratulations to the student-athletes for their outstanding academic and athletics achievements," stated Tim Hall, chair of the Division I-AAA ADA Scholar-Athlete Team Selection Committee and athletics director at the University of Missouri Kansas City. "These award winners epitomize what it means to be a student-athlete and we share the joy of acknowledging their momentous accomplishments."

Blaylock, a native of Blue Ridge, Va., averaged 7.2 points per game last season for the Bulldogs. She knocked 59 three-pointers, second best on the squad. Blaylock was named to the Big South All-Academic Team in March.

In addition, she has been named to the Big South Presidential Honor Roll once and the Athletic Director's 3.0 & Above Club three times.
