March 3, 2010
February 27, 2010, Jackson, Miss. — Three DePauw student-athletes have been selected to the All-Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Team and one was named the league's Defensive Player of the Year in voting by the head coaches.
The announcement came at halftime of the second semifinal game of the SCAC Women's Basketball Tournament. The complete team is available here.
Senior forward Emily Marshall (left) was named to the first team after earning second team honors in 2009. Prior to the conference tournament she led the Tigers in scoring (9.8) and rebounding (9.4), while shooting 53.4 percent from the field. Marshall is the school's all-time leading rebounder after setting the record on January 3 at Centre.
Senior forward Jenna Fernandez was named to the second team and received one vote for Player of the Year. She missed last year due to injury, but was a second team all-SCAC selection as a sophomore. Fernandez averaged 9.0 points per game and grabbed 4.2 rebounds per outing.
Sophomore forward Katie Aldrich earned a spot on the third team after averaging 9.7 points off the bench and shooting 53.4 percent from the floor. Aldrich grabbed 4.6 rebounds per game and, in conference games, led DePauw with 10.5 points each contest.
Mathews picked up four votes as the league's top defender and helped the Tigers to an opponent scoring average of 51.4 points per game which is on track to top the DePauw single-season record of 53.9 set in 1996-97. She averaged 8.1 points per game and is second on the team with 1.3 steals per outing.Back
