CU Pair Named To Academic All-Big 12 Women's Basketball Team
BOULDER - University of Colorado sophomore Meagan Malcolm-Peck and junior Julie Seabrook were named to the Academic All-Big 12 Conference Women's Basketball Team, the league office announced on Tuesday.
Seabrook and Malcolm-Peck were each named to the second team. The league academic honor is the second for Seabrook, who was a first team pick in 2010, and the first for Malcolm-Peck, who is in her first season of eligibility for this recognition.
Seabrook, a native of North Vancouver, B.C., has started all 23 games for the Buffaloes this year averaging 5.8 points and 5.8 rebounds a game. She is shooting a team-best 49.1 percent from the field and ranks 14th in the Big 12 in rebounding during league contests at 6.1 per outing. Currently the community service chair for CU's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Seabrook is a business major in the Leeds School of Business.

She tops the Big 12 in 3-point percentage during league only contests, hitting 12-of-24 from long distance. Malcolm-Peck, who already ranks among CU's career top 20 in blocked shots (16th with 48) and 3-point field goals (17th with 49), is planning to major in business.
