Stanford sophomore guard and 2011 Rock Island graduate Chasson Randle was named to the Pac-12 Conference All-Academic second team on Tuesday. Randle is one of seven Stanford players on the 13-player list.

In order to be eligible for the All-Academic team, a student-athlete must mustain a minimum 3.0 GPA and be either a starter or significant contributor. Per conference regulations, that means a player must participate in 50 percents of a team's scheduled contests excluding injuries.

Randle, one of two sophomores on the second team, has a 3.35 GPA. He averaged 13.6 points and 2.9 rebounds this season for the Cardinal, who reached the second round of the National Invitation Tournament.
