Temple guard T.J. DiLeo was named to the five-member Capital One Academic All-District basketball team.

The district includes Division I programs from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, West Virginia and Kentucky.

By making the team, the graduate student is on the ballot for Capital One’s Academic All-America team.  DiLeo has a 3.81 cumulative grade point average while pursuing a master’s degree in marketing.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder is listed questionable for Saturday’s game at St. Joe’s after spraining his right ankle on Saturday at Butler.  He sat out Wednesday’s home game against Richmond with the injury.

DiLeo, who is regarded as Temple’s top perimeter defender, averages three points and 2.2 rebounds in 19.5 minutes per game.
