    Southern Illinois University senior Kristine Abramowski was one of 18 student-athletes named to the 2001 Missouri Valley Conference Women's Basketball Scholar-Athlete Team, as voted by the MVC's sports information directors.

    Abramowski, the only Saluki voted to this year's squad, was named honorable mention as she holds a 3.01 grade point average in Elementary Education.

    Averaging 6.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, Abramowski has scored double figures in two of the Salukis' last three games notching a career high with 21 points against Drake (2/15). As SIU's leader in blocks with 23, Abramowski also ranks fourth in the league as well. In addition, she currently lists second on the team in steals with 28.

    The criteria for the Scholar-Athlete team balloting parallels the Verizon/CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America) standards for Academic All-America voting. Nominees must be starters or important reserves, have played in at least 50 percent of a team's games, and must carry at least a 3.00 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale). Student-athletes must also have reached sophomore athletic and academic standing at their institution (true and redshirt freshman are not eligible) and must have completed at least one full academic year at the institution. Honorable mention selections are awarded to student-athletes who receive a minimum of two votes. A total of 35 Valley student-athletes met the criteria for scholar-athlete honors in 2001.
