Following the ‘Dons weekend series, Hyde sits eighth all-time in IPFW history with 1,467 career points, which also ranks 23rd all-time in Summit League history.

The Academic All-District award recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combine performances athletically and in the classroom. Teams are divided into eight geographic districts across the United State and Canada.
