OCU's Gober Named Academic All-American

Posted: Updated:

Lauren Gober of Oklahoma City University has been honored as a College Sports Information Directors of America academic all-American.

Gober, a senior from Newcastle, Okla., made the women's basketball college-division third team. The college division includes student-athletes from NAIA, Canadian and two-year institutions.

The 6-foot-2 forward has compiled a 3.51 cumulative grade-point average while majoring in nursing. Gober has been recognized as an academic all-district choice twice and an NAIA scholar-athlete award winner.

Gober is averaging 16.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.33 steals while shooting 43.4 percent from 3-point range. She has been Sooner Athletic Conference player of the week three times this season.

In her Stars career, Gober has accumulated 1,605 points, 661 rebounds, 153 assists, 224 steals, 88 blocked shots and an OCU-record 289 3-pointers. She is a two-time all-American and three-time all-SAC selection.

To be eligible for academic all-America® consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standings at his/her current institution and be nominated by his/her sports information director.

Since the program's inception in 1952, CoSIDA has bestowed academic all-America honors on more than 15,000 student-athletes in Divisions I, II, III and NAIA, covering all NCAA championship sports.

OCU (22-2, 14-0 SAC) plays Oklahoma Baptist at 6 p.m. Thursday in Shawnee, Okla. The Stars wrapped up their 14th league regular-season title Saturday.
