Ingbretson held a 3.83 cumulative GPA going into the basketball season, a mark that he has upped to 3.85 after earning a perfect 4.0 GPA in the fall of 2010. He also accomplished that feat in the fall of 2009 and has been on the Grizzlies’ Athletic Directors’ Honor Roll after all five of his semesters at ASC since transferring from Otero Junior College.
Athletically, Ingbretson has made 63 career appearance is his 2 ½ seasons with the Grizzlies, making 25 starts. He has had 20 double-figure scoring efforts in his career, including a season-high 11-point effort this season against Mesa State on Dec. 20.
He has scored 421 points while grabbing 182 rebounds in his career. He has also made 52 3-pointers in his time as a Grizzly and led the 2008-09 edition of the squad in that category with 42 treys.
In 2010-11, Ingbretson has played in all 14 games for the Grizzlies helping the team to an 11-3 overall record, their best mid-season record in the program’s NCAA Division II history. He has averaged 3.2 points and 2.9 rebounds per game this season and has made nine steals.
To be eligible for the Academic All-RMAC accolades, a student-athlete must have a 3.30 or higher cumulative GPA, be a starter or reserve and be in their second year at the institution. Sports Information Directors at all 14 RMAC institutions nominate and select the players named to the first and second teams. These SID’s took into account the student-athletes work in the classroom and on the field.
This is the fourth year in the sport of men’s basketball that the RMAC has used this general format. In previous years, student-athletes only received an honor-roll type award.
Ingbretson’s GPA was the fourth highest of the 29 total players to be honored, which includes 5-member first and second teams.
