Mashack Earns Academic All-District Acclaim

Mashack Earns Academic All-District Acclaim

For the second consecutive season, the Tennessee basketball program has produced an Academic All-District honoree, as sophomore guard Jahmai Mashack was recognized for his achievement in the classroom.

College Sports Communicators (CSC) announced its 2022-23 Academic All-District Men’s and Women’s Basketball Teams Tuesday. The teams recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the court and in the classroom. Santiago Vescovi earned all-district recognition a year ago.

Academic All-District honorees advance to the CSC Academic All-America ballot. First-, second- and third-team Academic All-America selections will be announced in March.

Mashack was one of five players from the SEC to earn Academic All-District inclusion.

On the court, Mashack is coming off arguably his most productive week as a Vol. The 6-4 guard from Fontana, California, showed off his offensive and defensive versatility in recent games against top-ranked Alabama and Kentucky.

In Tennessee’s triumph over the No. 1 Crimson Tide, Mashack made his first career SEC start and played lockdown defense on projected NBA Lottery Pick Brandon Miller. When guarded by Mashack, Miller was 0-for-6 from the field with four points—all of which came via free throws. In Mashack’s 27 impactful minutes, he logged three steals and posted a team-high plus/minus rating of +9.

Three days later at Kentucky, Mashack made his second straight start and posted career-high totals in points (16), rebounds (8) and minutes (34).

Mashack’s role in Tennessee’s rotation has increased as the SEC regular season has progressed. He has logged five starts this season, including three in league play. His 39 steals are a career-best and rank as third-most on the team. He has seven games this season with three or more steals.
