Hammon Named To All-South Region First Team
The postseason accolades for Jasmine Hammon continue to roll in as she earned a position on the Daktronics Women’s Basketball All-South Region squad for the second consecutive season.
Hammon – who was the Gulf South Conference Player of the Year – leads the league in scoring with 18.0 points per game while helping guide the Lady Chargers to the team’s first-ever crown at the GSC Championships.
The junior from Muscle Shoals, Ala., is the program’s scoring leader as she took over first all-time in the contest at North Alabama late in the season. This season she has scored in double figures in 30 of the team’s 31 games, and Hammon has surpassed the 20-point mark in 10 contests.
Joining her on the First Team is the South Region Player of the Year Kira Harvey from Lynn, while fellow GSC player Nikkia Jordan of West Alabama is also on the team. Nova Southeastern’s Mexiandra Porter and Courtney English of Miles are the other two selections to the First Team.
UWA’s Brittany Weathers earned a spot on the Second Team, and she is joined by Kayk Wilson of Florida Tech, Saint Leo’s Teresa Manigrasso, Krystal Charles from Eckerd, and NSU’s Danielle Robinson.
The 2012-13 Daktronics Women’s Basketball All-America Team will be announced on March 22. The first team members from each of the country’s eight regions are placed on the national ballot with the Division II SIDs selecting a first, second and third-team All-America honorees.
