Saints Dominate All-MFC Selections

Law has averaged 14.4 points per game, 3.7 assists and 2.5 steals over 26 regular season games this season.


"I was so pleased with the play of our three sophomore guards," said SF head coach Chanda Stebbins. "Nene, Steph, and Nae really led the way for us.  I am so proud of Nae and her player of the year honor, it really says a lot about how much she has carried us this year."


Sophomores Airneshia Gamble and Stephanie Jackson along with freshman Chardell Jones also made first team status.


Jackson averaged 14.1 ppg., 3.5 apg and 2.3 steals while Gamble averaged 12.9 ppg., 3.9 apg and 2.5 steals.


Stebbins, named MFC Coach of the Year for the fifth time since 2009, said that trio of Law, Gamble and Jackson formed a backcourt that was hard to guard for opponents.


"I can't imagine what the year would have looked like if Steph and Nene would have been healthy with Nae all year, but I think their injuries have helped us develop more grit and ultimately probably helped us diversify our scoring which I think was a key to winning the conference."

Jones a freshman forward out of Jones High School in Orlando averaged 10.4 ppg and a team high 7.2 rebounds per game joins the Saints backcourt on the first team while sophomore Rhea Smith and freshman Danasia Bogle were voted to the second team.


"This team has a done a great job locking in and really believing in each other and they work it takes to be their best.  I have been pleased to see this group go from challenging for a conference title last year to knowing they could win it this year.  They have made great strides."


The Saints will face first round opponent Eastern Florida State College in the FCSAA/NJCAA Region VIII Women's Basketball Tournament Wednesday at 8 p.m. at the College of Central Florida in Ocala.
