The Lady Redhawks were well represented on the AMCC All-Conference Team announced this morning. Four La Roche women's basketball players earned All-Conference nods including Sabrina McLin who was named the Player of the Year and Danasha Harris who was named the Defensive Player of the Year. McLin and TiChina Mitchell were on to the All-Conference First Team and Mackenzie O'Donnell was on the All-Conference Second Team.
Junior guard Sabrina McLin is the 2016 AMCC Women's Basketball Player of the Year. McLin, the AMCC Preseason Player of the Year and preseason all-American, ranked seventh in the nation in scoring and finished tied for second in the AMCC with 21.4 points per game. She was second in the conference with 52 three-pointers, ranked third in steals with 77 and was fifth in assists with 96. She was also twice named the AMCC Player of the Week and is the school's third leading scorer all-time.
Junior forward TiChina Mitchell made a huge impact in her first season on campus. She was the ABCA National Player of the Week, a D3hoop's Team of the Week honoree, and a 3-time AMCC Player of the Week winner. Mitchell scored in double-figures in every game this season and also tied with McLin for the AMCC lead. She led the league in field goals, ranked second in offensive rebounds, fourth in field goal percentage, free throw percentage and rebounds, and fifth in free throws.
Junior forward Mackenzie O'Donnell earns a spot on the second team after two straight years on the third team. O'Donnell was the AMCC Player of the Week in December and ranked among the top players in the conference on both sides of the ball. She was second in free throws, third in blocks, fifth in scoring and sixth in blocks. O'Donnell also became the eleventh player in school history to score 1000 career points.
For the third straight year, La Roche junior forward Danasha Harris has been selected as the AMCC Defensive Player of the Year. She led the AMCC in steals and ranked eleventh nationally in the same category. She also ranked second in the AMCC in assists and fourth in offensive rebounding.
