Roe, Enfield make Academic All-America


University of Maryland guard Matt Roe was named yesterday to the GTE Academic All-America University Division first team.

Johns Hopkins guard Andy Enfield was named to the first team college division.

The team is named on the basis of a combination of academic TTC and athletic achievement.

Roe, a radio-television-film major with a 3.5 grade-point average, averaged 17.8 points this season.

"I haven't realized what it means yet, but it's a nice thing to have on your resume," said Roe, a senior from Manlius, N.Y. "It combines what college basketball is supposed to be about."

Enfield, a senior economics major from Shippensburg, Pa., with a 3.46 GPA, holds the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III record for career free-throw percentage, .923, and single-season record, 953.

Roe, who transferred to Maryland in 1989 after playing three seasons at Syracuse, is the first Terp named to the first team since Tom McMillen did it three straight seasons, ending in 1974. Greg Manning made the second team in 1980-81.
