The D3hoops all-South Region team is out.

In a first team with 3 guards, Abby Holland is the SCAC's sole representative (and sole forward).  Raenett Hughes of UT-Dallas, who almost singlehandedly beat Trinity in both of their games this season, was named MVP.

Colorado College's McKenzee Gertz makes the second team at forward and returns next year.

Austin's sharpshooting Kacie West was named to the third team and rounds out the SCAC's representation.   She's also back next year.

Players from provisional St. Thomas were (apparently) not eligible, which to me seems appropriate.

That is correct on the eligibility -- only full members of Division III are eligible for the postseason awards.

So with the tournament getting cancelled half way through, do you guys think the NCAA will let the Seniors come back next year, or will they just be done with their careers?

I'd be surprised if they got another year of eligibility.

No... a vast majority of players had already finished their seasons. With both genders, there were only 32 teams still playing. Close to 850 had stopped.

And you can't just give it to seniors. You would probably have to hand it out to all players. So, we will have players who are in their fifth seasons ... for the next four years.

Nothing against winter athletes, but they played their seasons. I am sorry the championships were taken out from under all of them ... but it isn't like the spring where sports have been shut down just as they were getting going.

Just a horrible situation for the Seniors still in the tourney, they have worked so hard for the opportunity to win a National Championship for the rug to just be pulled out from under them.

Abby was the only SCAC player named to the d3hoops.com All-America teams (men's or women's), landing a third-team nod yesterday.
