Rowley nets prestigious honor for Tribe men's hoops

William and Mary men's basketball redshirt sophomore Paul Rowley has been elected to the elite Phi Beta Kappa honor society.

A total of 48 men and women were elected in the spring semester.

Rowley, who started nine games for the Tribe and averaged 5.4 points, will graduate in just three years with a double major in finance and computer science.

Along with Rowley, William and Mary field hockey player Olivia Hajek was elected in the spring class along with men's swimmer Josh Zimmt and women's lacrosse player Rachel Rapp.

Rowley is the first Tribe men's basketball player since Wayne Metcalf in 1912-13 to be named to Phi Beta Kappa.
