ATLANTA, Ga. - The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) announced its Division II Coaches' All-America team today and Edinboro University graduate student Laurel Lindsay earned honorable mention honors for the second straight season. The Fighting Scots' season ended on March 3 in the PSAC Quarterfinals in a 71-63 loss at Indiana (Pa.). They went 20-8 this year with a 16-6 record in the PSAC West.
This is yet another prestigious award on the long list of accomplishments for Lindsay in her career. Earlier this season she garnered first team All-PSAC West honors after earning second team honors last year along with honorable mention WBCA All-American accolades.
Lindsay finished the season fourth for Edinboro in scoring (12.6 ppg.), second in rebounding (5.4 rpg.), and led the team with 206 assists. The assists figure is the fourth-highest total in a single season in school history. The South Park, Pa. native also led the PSAC with 7.4 assists per game, a mark that currently ranks third in all of Division II. Lindsay committed just 102 turnovers this season despite her high volume of handling the ball. She also led the Fighting Scots with 50 steals.
Lindsay, a South Park graduate, was also a key part in one of the best 3-point shooting teams in the nation. The guard/forward made 39-of-104 (37.5 percent) of her 3-point attempts as Edinboro is second in the nation in 3-point percentage shooting 39.5 percent from beyond the arc. The Fighting Scots 196 3-pointers made is also the second-most for a single season in school history, only behind last year's squad that made 200 3-pointers.
