Titans Post Best GPA

June 7, 2011

Fullerton, Calif. - The Cal State Fullerton men's basketball team enjoyed a banner "season" in the classroom in the recently completed Spring semester, compiling an aggregate 3.19 grade point average, the highest in the program's history.

Three players - senior-to-be Omondi Amoke, graduating senior JerVaughn Johnson and junior-to-be Kwame Vaughn - all made the Dean's List with GPA's above 3.50. Nine more players made the honor roll with GPA's above 3.00. The three remaining players just missed that group, coming in at 2.99, 2.80 and 2.26.

"I want to congratulate our players -- they worked extremely hard in the classroom this past semester," said ninth-year Head Coach Bob Burton. "They know the importance of a college degree and are all striving to graduate on schedule. We should also credit Academics Advisor Mike Miles and Assistant Coach Scott Waterman, who coordinates academics, for their assistance in overseeing this tremendous effort on the part of our players."

Joining Johnson in 2011 commencement exercises were guards Devon Peltier and Eric Williams. This trio gives the program 17 graduates in the past four years:

2008 - Kenneth Alexander, Marcus Crenshaw, Scott Cutley, Andrew Green, Marcus Morgan, Ray Reed and Frank Robinson
2009 -Josh Akognon, Marcio Lassiter and Adam Thomas
2010 - Gerard Anderson, Frank Granados, Papa Guisse and Aaron Thompson
