Senior Jay-Ann Bravo-Harriott has been named to the 2017-18 College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-America First Team.

Bravo-Harriott becomes only the fourth player in school history to earn this prestigious honor and first since Kim Knuth during the 1998-99 campaign. 

The 5-foot-10 guard averaged 12.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.6 steals in 29.3 minutes per game this past season. The three-time all-league honoree ranks sixth in the Mid-American Conference in three-point field-goals made (74), 10th in three-point field-goal percentage (.374, 74 of 198), and 20th in scoring.

The three-time Academic All-District selection concluded the regular season eighth in UT annals in three-point field-goal attempts and 10th in three-point field goals made in the single-season record book. Bravo-Harriott made at least four triples on a team-high eight occasions during the year, including a program-tying best eight at archrival Bowling Green Jan. 27.  

The London native 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 of business administration degree. 

She is joined on the first team by New Mexico’s Cherise Beynon, Idaho’s Mikayla Ferenz, Ball State’s Carmen Grande and Kent State’s Jordan Korinek.

As of March 15, Bravo-Harriott was third in school history in three-point field goals made (240) and three-point field-goal attempts (672), eighth in minutes played (3,525), 10th in three-point field-goal percentage (.357, 240 of 672), and 13th in scoring (1,426 points).
