DURHAM, N.C.-Three members of the Duke University wrestling program were selected to the 2012 Wrestling All-ACC Academic Team as announced by ACC Commissioner John Swofford. Redshirt freshman Brandon Gambucci, sophomore Brian Self and redshirt junior Peter Terrezza were among the 19 selections.

Gambucci and Self earn All-Academic Team recognition for the first time, while Peter Terrezza was named to the team for the third time. Duke was one of three programs, joining Virginia and Virginia Tech, to have at least three players selected.

Gambucci anchored Duke's lineup at 133 pounds and posted a 23-11 overall record in his first season competing in a Duke uniform. The Mansfield, Ohio native posted five top-four finishes, including taking fourth place in the ACC Championships and winning the Davidson Open. Gambucci was named the ACC Wrestler of the Week after posting a 3-0 week with wins over NC State, Ohio and Appalachian State.

Duke's leader at 197 pounds, Self finished the year with a 7-18 overall record. He is 24-30 for his career and captured dual match victories over Boston University, Bridgewater State and Davidson. Terrezza rounds out Duke's list after going 19-14 at 125 pounds. He was 6-4 in dual matches and finished among the top three in two tournaments. He earned ACC dual victories over Maryland and NC State. Terrezza is 58-45 for his career.

The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards were established in September 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports. Candidates for the awards must have maintained a 3.0 grade point average for their career as well as a 3.0 for each of the last two semesters.

To be eligible for All-ACC Academic Team consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a minimum 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a minimum 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.
