Huntsville, Ala. – The awards continued to roll in for UAH women’s basketball player Jasmine Hammon on Monday as she earned her second All-America accolade of the postseason when the Division II Bulletin announced its All-America Teams. Hammon – a three-time selection by the WBCA – earned a spot on the organization’s fourth team.

Each team is made up of five players, and Hammon was one of only two players from the South Region to make the list as Meixandra Porter from Nova Southeastern landed on the third team.

Hammon helped guide the Lady Chargers to a first-ever GSC Women’s Basketball Championships title and a second consecutive appearance at the NCAA tournament where the team picked up the program’s first win at the South Regional.

The junior – who was also named the Gulf South Conference’s Player of the Year – broke the school record for points in a career and ended the year second in the league in scoring with 17.6 points per game, and Hammon ranked fourth in the conference in steals with more than two takeaways per contest.

Scoring in double figures in 31 of the team’s 33 games while averaging 30.5 minutes a night, she recorded 20 points or more on 10 occasions.
