FLORENCE, S.C. – Five members of the Francis Marion University basketball programs have been acknowledged for their work in the classroom by being named to the FMU President’s and Dean’s Lists for the 2004 fall semester.
Seniors Jennifer Howard and Michelle Ghere were both named to the President’s List with perfect 4.0 grade point averages. Howard, a native of Raleigh, N.C., is majoring in both biology and chemistry, while Ghere, a native of Long Beach, Miss., is a math major.
Juniors Danielle Moore (Owings Mills, Md.) and Erving “Vony” Rivers (Burton, S.C.) and redshirt freshman Brittany Young (Moncks Corner) were named to the Dean’s List. Moore is majoring in marketing, Rivers in management, and Young is an undecided major.
Students named to the President’s List must have earned a 3.75 or higher grade point average for the semester. Of those students listed on the President’s List, 160 earned perfect 4.0 grade point averages, the highest possible ratio a student can receive. Dean’s List students earned a GPA for the semester between 3.25 and 3.749.
This weekend, the Patriot teams travel to Atlanta to play Peach Belt Conference foe Clayton College & State University on Saturday afternoon. The FMU women (4-8, 0-1) will play the Lady Lakers (9-3, 1-0) at 2 p.m., while the Patriot men (6-5, 1-0) will meet the Clayton State men (8-7, 1-0) at 4 p.m. The Lakers were a pre-season Top 25 squad, ranked 15th, but stumbled to open the year. However, the CC&SU men have recovered to win their last five contests.
The Patriot men will likely play without the services of pre-season All-American Louis McCullough (17.3 ppg, 7.6 rpg), who missed Wednesday’s conference opener with a leg injury.
