SPASH students excel in the classroom and on the court

Stevens Point has the smartest boys and girls basketball teams in the state.  
Both Panthers squads, took home the WBCA team academic all-state honors for having the best team GPA's in Wisconsin.  
This is the first award for the lady panthers, who had a 3.78 team GPA.  The boys team had a 3.79 team GPA.  This is the second year in a row the SPASH boys have won with DC Everest as a runner up both years.  The boys team runs a motion offense on the court, a complicated scheme for most teams, but not for this panthers squad.  Boys coach Scott Anderson says having an intellectual team makes his job a lot easier.  Both coaches and all the players say there isn't a ton of pressure on the players to keep up in the classroom, they're all just good kids with a lot of motivation.
