Marcus Ruh Named to D2Bulletin All-America Third Team

SAINT LEO, Fla. – Saint Leo men's basketball standout Marcus Ruh can add another honor to his growing list of achievements as he has been selected to the D2Bulletin All-America Team as was announced by the publication earlier this week.

Named to the Bulletin's Third Team while helping the Lions to a second-straight NCAA Tournament appearance and a Sunshine State Conference Title, Ruh was also named this year's Sunshine State Conference Player of the Year after averaging 16.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.0 steals per game as he shot 46 percent from the field, a similar 46 percent from the 3-point line and 80 percent from the free throw line.

Transferring to Saint Leo prior to his junior season, the Green Bay, Wis., native has racked up an impressive list of awards, including the highest academic honor a men's basketball player can receive as he was named the 2013 Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-America of the Year.  In addition to this all-district award, Ruh is also a Daktronics All-Region honoree, was a First-Team All-SSC selection, a member of the NABC All-District Team, the 2011-12 Saint Leo Scholar-Athlete of the Year and a member of the Conference's All-Newcomer Team a season ago.
