BATON ROUGE – Sophomore guard Skylar Mays of the LSU Basketball team was named to the second team of the 2017-18 Academic All-America Division I basketball team as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Mays has a 4.01 GPA in Biological Sciences and is the only first-year eligible player (sophomore) to make the three-five-members squads this year.

District 6 covers Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
From the all-district selections, Mays was then chosen second team Academic A-A based on a vote of the CoSIDA Academic All-America committee.
Mays has started every game this season for the Tigers and is averaging 11.2 points per game, 4.1 rebounds a game and 3.1 assists per game. He has made 42 treys and 77-of-92 free throws (83.7 percent).
