Brea, Calif. - UCLA senior Brad Greiner, junior Matthew Jacobs and sophomore Krsto Sbutega have earned ACWPC All-America Academic Team honors, the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches announced last week. Sbutega has twice been named to the AWPCA All-America Academic Team.

Sbutega, a sophomore from Rome, Italy, captured AWPCA All-America Academic "superior" accolades for the second time in as many years. In 2006, Sbutega scored 30 goals, the second-highest total on the team, on a team-high 92 attempts. A third-team All-America selection, he collected a team-leading 21 assists and 17 steals. Born in Kotor, Yugoslavia, the European product has registered 58 goals and 27 steals in 52 career matches.

Greiner, a senior from Yorba Linda, Calif., played in and started all 23 games for the Bruins. He scored nine goals on 21 attempts in his final season. Greiner was named to the AWPCA All-America Academic team for the first time in his career and was named an "excellent" student-athlete.

Jacobs, a junior from Santa Cruz, Calif., gained AWPCA All-America Academic "excellent" honors for the first time in his career. He finished the 2006 campaign with 13 goals on 31 attempts and added 15 steals for UCLA in all 23 games.

The AWPCA selects three All-Academic teams per year - outstanding (3.71 - 4.00 GPA), superior (3.41 - 3.70 GPA) and excellent (3.20 - 3.40 GPA).
