Rayburn Honored for Academics

A Purdue basketball player is receiving accolades for her performance in the classroom.

The College Sports Information Directors of America named Brittany Rayburn to its District Five First Team All-Academic list.

It’s the second year in a row she’s earned first team honors and third straight year she has been acknowledged.  In 2010, Rayburn was placed on the second team.

She has a 3.71 GPA in Animal Science.

The senior leads Purdue with more than 14-points per game this season.

The 15th-ranked Boilermakers take on number 16 Nebraska Thursday at Mackey Arena at seven.
