USI women’s basketball picks up four All-GLVC selections
The University of Southern Indiana women’s basketball team had four players listed on the All-Great Lakes Valley Conference teams, which were released this morning. The Screaming Eagles had two first-team selections and a pair of honorable mention selections.
Sophomore forward Jessica Stuckman (Quincy, Illinois) and senior guard Jasmine Moore (Chicago, Illinois) were selected to the first team while senior forward Casey Hughes (Bicknell, Indiana) and junior forward/center Africa Sherrod (Ft. Lauderdale, Florida) were named honorable mention.
Stuckman, who finished second in the GLVC Player of the Year voting, is averaging a conference-best 20.7 points per game and is sixth in the league in rebounding (7.3 rpg). Last season’s GLVC Freshman of the year, Stuckman was named the GLVC Tournament’s most outstanding player for the second consecutive season after averaging 23.3 points and 10.0 rebounds per contest. She was named All-GLVC honorable mention last season.
Moore is adding 14.0 points per outing as well as a team-high 4.3 assists and 3.4 steals per game. One of the most exciting players on the court, Moore set a school record for steals in a season (102) and ranks fourth all-time in career steals (171) as well as fifth all-time in career assists (279). Moore was named All-GLVC honorable mention a year ago.
Hughes is on the All-GLVC team for the third time in four years. Hughes, who is USI’s career leader in steals (200), is averaging 11.0 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.
After averaging 3.3 rebounds in her first 18 games, Hughes has recorded 6.1 rebounds per outing in her last 13 contests. She ranks fifth all-time in career points (1,401) and is the fifth player in USI history reach 1,000 points and 500 rebounds in a career.
Sherrod was named All-GLVC honorable mention after averaging 11.4 points and 6.0 rebounds per contest. A two-time GLVC “Player of the Week” this season, Sherrod has scored in double-figures 18 times and has record two double-doubles in 2001-02.
The Eagles, who enter this week’s NCAA Division II Great Lakes Regional Tournament at the Physical Activities Center as the number one seed, will play the winner of the Hillsdale College-Gannon University game this Friday, March 8. Tip off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
