A pair of Southern University at New Orleans players have been selected as National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Division I Women’s Basketball Honorable Mention All-Americans, the NAIA announced. Sabrina Scott and Brandy Broome were recognized for their outstanding play during the 2013-14 season.
The duo helped lead SUNO to a 15-6 record this year; good enough for a second place finish in the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference’s Western Division.
Brandy Broome, a junior guard/forward from Natchitoches, La., finished the season ranked in the GCAC top-10 in scoring (17.45 ppg), rebounding (9.40 rpg), steals (5.2 spg), assists (4.55 apg) and blocked shots (1.05 bpg), the only player to achieve that feat. Her 5.2 steals per game also led all Division I players. Broome scored in double figures in 18 of 20 contests for the Lady Knights, including 11 games of 20 or more points. She also led the Lady Knights with 9 double-doubles.
Sabrina Scott, a senior center from Tacoma, Wash., earned recognition for the second consecutive season as one of the top interior players in the nation. Sabrina led the nation in blocks, averaging 5.3 per game. She also averaged a double-double by scoring 10.9 points and collecting 10.4 rebounds per game. Sabrina collected her fourth career triple-double in a game against Wiley College with 24 points, 15 rebounds and 14 blocks.
“Both young ladies are very proud of being selected as Honorable Mention All-Americans,” said Women’s Basketball Head Coach Elston King. “They are both great student-athletes in the total sense of the word. Brandy is one of the most talented players I’ve come across. She has tremendous versatility and the ability to play just about every position on the court both offensively and defensively. Sabrina has grown so much as a player over the last few seasons and has remained a dominant presence even as opponents focused much more attention on her this year. This is a great reward for both players for the hard work they put into their games.”
