Terps' Roe makes GTE all-academic team


Matt Roe has become the first Maryland player to make the GTE Academic All-America first team since Tom McMillen did it three straight seasons, ending in 1974. Roe was named to the university division first team, and Johns Hopkins guard Andy Enfield was named to the college division first team.

Roe, who transferred to Maryland after three years at Syracuse, averaged 17.8 points as a shooting guard for the Terps this season. He has a 3.5 grade-point average as a radio-television-film major.

Enfield, a senior economics major with a 3.46 average, recently set NCAA records for all divisions in career free throw percentage (.923) and single-season percentage (.953).
