By Tom Weber,

Southern Illinois junior guard Marcus Bartley was named a CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America) Academic All-American on Monday. He joined fellow Missouri Valley Conference player Reed Timmer on the Third Team.

A sport administration major with a 4.00 GPA, Bartley led Southern Illinois with 90 assists, despite missing the first six games of the season with a broken wrist. He returned in December and played in 26 games, including 22 starts. The Saint Louis transfer and Decatur, Illinois native averaged 6.7 points and ranked second on the team in 3-point shooting percentage at .383. In two games against Northern Iowa, he went 8-for-11 from outside the arc.

Bartley is the program’s first Academic All-America team pick since Bryan Mullins won first-team honors in 2009.
