CARBONDALE, Ill. – Southern Illinois forward Marcus Domask was named to the 2022-23 Academic All-America First Team, selected by the College Sports Communicators (Formally CoSIDA) and announced Tuesday. Domask holds a 3.99 GPA in Sport Administration.

“This is a tremendous honor for Marcus. I couldn’t be happier for him and everything he has earned here at SIU,” head coach Bryan Mullins said. “He embodies what it means to be a Saluki on the court, in the classroom, and the community. This is a four-year award that doesn’t happen overnight. He has always prioritized his academics and understands how big of an impact it will have on the rest of his life.”

The senior has earned a plethora of academic honors over his time at SIU including back-to-back State Farm MVC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, CSC Academic All-District, NABC Academic All-District, MVC First Team Scholar-Athlete, MVC Commissioner’s Academic Excellence honors among others.

Domask becomes SIU’s fourth-ever First Team Academic All-American, joining Mike Glenn (1976, 77) and Bryan Mullins (2008, 09), and Marcus Bartley (2019).
