The USC women's basketball team has improved its performance on the court and off this season, following up its first-ever Pac-12 Tournament Championship with a set of academic accolades to round out the impressive 2013-14 season posted by the Women of Troy. With four Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention recipients, the Trojans have grabbed the most academic honors since 2007. With this season's conference academic accolades, USC seniors Cassie Harberts and Kate Oliver close their careers with multiple academic honors, while sophomore Jordan Adams and Destinie Gibbs have earned their first spots on the honor roll.
Senior Cassie Harberts now has a complete set of three Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention honors. A Senior CLASS Award candidate this season, Harberts holds a 3.19 GPA as a human performance major. Fellow senior Kate Oliver came to USC as a transfer form Marist, and her strength in the classroom has secured her a second set of honors with Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention. She holds a 3.25 GPA as an international relations major.
Eligible for Pac-12 academic honors for the first time as sophomores, Jordan Adams and Destinie Gibbs join their senior teammates with Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention. A communications major, Adams has a 3.15 GPA in her sophomore campaign. Gibbs leads the pack with a 3.40 GPA as a communications major.
USC last had four conference academic award winners in 2007.
