BUFFALO, N.Y. - Canisius College senior Isaac Sosa has been named to the 2012-13 Capital One Academic All-District I Men's Basketball Team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced today. Sosa is the only player from a school in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference to receive this honor and his name has been placed on the ballot for the Capital One Academic All-America Team, which will be announced later next month.

Sosa, who holds a 3.48 grade point average as a finance major at the College, ranks third on the team in scoring average with his 12.8 points per game. The guard from Guaynabo, Puerto Rico ranks second in the MAAC and 15th in the nation with 3.1 3-point field goals per game and he ranks 26th nationally in 3-point field goal percentage, where he is shooting 41.9 percent from behind the arc. A team co-captain, Sosa scored a season-high 25 points in the Golden Griffins' win over Manhattan at home Jan. 17 and he drained a career-high eight 3-pointers in the Griffs' 82-54 win over Longwood Dec. 17 at home. He has hit 65 shots from long-range this season and he starts tonight's game against Loyola (Md.) with three or more 3-point field goals in 12 of the team's last 13 contests.

Sosa is the first Canisius men's basketball player to earn academic all-district honors since former Griff Darren Fenn was honored for his work in the classroom during the 2000-01 campaign. The Capital One Academic All-District Men's Basketball Teams are released annually to recognized the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and academically.
