Senior Jay-Ann Bravo-Harriott has been named to the 2017-18 College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-District 5 Team for a school-record third-straight year. 

The two-time team captain is one of five players in program history to earn this prestigious honor and the first to achieve this feat on more than two occasions.

To be nominated, the student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) for her career. District 5 includes all schools within the states of Ohio, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.

Bravo-Harriott will advance to the College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.

Bravo-Harriott, a 5-foot-10 guard, is averaging 12.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 0.6 steals in 29.0 minutes per game. The two-time All-Mid-American Conference honoree ranks seventh in the league in three-point field-goals made (63), 12th in three-point field-goal percentage (.368, 63 of 171) and 20th in scoring (12.8 points per game).

A native of London, Bravo-Harriott graduated in December with a degree in communication and a minor in general business and a perfect 4.0 GPA. She is working on a master’s degree in business administration. 

She is joined on the team by Indiana’s Tyra Buss and Amanda Cahill, Kent State’s Jordan Korinek and Ball State’s Carmen Grande.

Bravo-Harriott and the Rockets (17-10, 8-7 MAC) will look to continue gaining momentum for the upcoming MAC Tournament when they play Saturday, Feb. 24, at Ball State (22-4, 11-4 MAC). Tip-off time is set for 2 p.m. in Worthen Arena and will be streamed live on ESPN3.
