North Georgia's Hill named All-Region first team
DAHLONEGA -– University of North Georgia women's basketball player Mimi Hill has been named a 2014 Daktronics Southeast Region first team All-Region selection as announced on Thursday morning.
Earlier this season, Hill was named the Peach Belt Conference Player of the Year and landed a spot on the 1st team All-Conference squad. She also garnered All-Tournament honors following last week's PBC Tournament.
The senior forward from Gainesville, Ga., leads the PBC in scoring with 24 points per game which is on pace to be tied for the third-highest single-season average in league history. She also leads the conference in free throw percentage and is eighth in rebounding and blocks. A two-time PBC Player of the Week, Hill scored 30 or more six times this season including a season-best 37 against Georgia Southwestern in the regular-season finale. She had nine double-doubles on the season.
Joining Hill on the first team were Kayla Harris from Wingate University, Jazmine Charles from Lenior-Rhyne, Haylee Lepaio from Newberry College and Nyeshea Willie from Barton College. Charles was named the Daktronics Region Player of the Year.
Sports Information Directors from NCAA Division II Southeast Region schools and conferences selected the Daktronics All-Region team. The process concludes with All-American selections announced later in the month.
Players selected to the region first team will now be listed on the Daktronics All-American national ballot.
The team is sponsored by Daktronics, Inc., an acknowledged world leader in scoring, timing and programmable display systems for virtually every sport at every level of competition. The team is voted on by the NCAA Division II members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
