Senior forward Jane Morrill and freshman guard Jamie Ruffins of the Arkansas State women's basketball team have been selected to the 2013-14 College Sports Madness All-Sun Belt Conference Preseason Team the website announced Thursday.
Morrill received first-team all-conference recognition by the College Sports Madness, which placed five student-athletes apiece on its first and second teams. Ruffins was named as the publication's SBC Preseason Freshman of the Year while Western Kentucky's Alexis Govan was tabbed the Preseason Player of the Year.
For the 2012-13 campaign, Morrill averaged a team-high 14.3 points per game and scored a squad-most 430 points in helping Arkansas state to a 15-15 overall record and second place in the SBC West Division race with a 12-8 conference division mark. The 6-1, post player also led the Red Wolves in field goal percentage (.512) and was second on the team on rebounds per game (5.4) and free throw percentage (.839). A starter in all 30 of A-State's contest, Morrill averaged 30.2 minutes per game and knocked down 20 3-pointers last season.
Morrill ranked seventh among the 2012-13 SBC's scoring leaders for all games and registered double-figure scoring in a team-best 25 contests last season with six being 20 points or more single-game performances.
