HARTFORD, Conn. -- Sophomore point
guard Andrea Holmes and senior guard
Erica Carter have each been named second
team America East All-Conference. The results of the voting,
which was done by the nine conference coaches, were announced
After being named to the third team last season (in addition
to earning Rookie of the Year honors), Holmes ranked ninth in
the conference in scoring this year (13.0 ppg.) and third in
assists (4.8 apg.). She reached the 20-point mark in scoring
seven times, finished in double figures in assists twice and
in rebounding once.
"Andrea really stepped up her game this season in scoring,
rebounds and assists," head coach Nicole Scholl said. "Where
she improved the most this season, however, was in her leadership."
Carter, meanwhile, earned all conference honors for the first
time in her career. She led the Bearcats and ranked seventh in
the America East this season with 13.2 points per game. Carter
also ranked first in the conference with a .476 three-point field
goal percentage and 3.4 three-point field goals per game.
"Erica has been a major contributor to our program and this
is a great honor for her," School said. "She had a
breakout season (in terms of her) three-point shooting and has
been consistent for us all season."
Binghamton (11-18, 7-9 AE) is the No. 5 seed at the America East
Tournament. The Bearcats face No. 4 Stony Brook in the quarterfinal
round on Friday at 8:15 p.m.
