Northwestern's Drew Crawford and Ohio State's Aaron Craft were named first-team Capital One Academic All-Americans, as announced by CoSIDA on Thursday. In addition, Craft became just the third student-athlete to repeat as Division I men's basketball Academic All-America of the Year.

A three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree, Crawford graduated from Northwestern University in spring 2013 with a 3.31 grade-point average (GPA) and a degree in economics. With one more season of eligibility available, Crawford remained at NU under first-year head coach Chris Collins and enrolled in the School of Continuing Studies to obtain a master's degree in sports administration.

Craft was named the 2013 Capital One Academic All-America of the Year and was a first-team Academic All-American in 2012 and 2013. He becomes the fourth Big Ten student-athlete to earn first team honors three times.

The four three-time Academic All-Americans representing the Big Ten are Craft (2012-13-14), Michigan's Steve Grote (1975-76-77), Northwestern's Shon Morris (1986-87-88) and Michigan State's Chris Hill (2004-05-06).
