Summit League slights Ladies
Centenary women's basketball coach Steve Curtis was steaming on Wednesday night -- and with good reason.
The veteran coach was upset that his fresham forward Anne Farrell wasn't selected as the Summit League Newcomer of the year and that former Loyola standout Ashley Jackson didn't make the team at all.
Western Illinois’ Katy Davenport captured the honor after averaging 10.8 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. Farrell averaged 12.2 points and 6.8 boards despite being the focus of opposing defenses. Farrell also had the best field goal percentage (.445) of anyone who made the Newcomer team.
Jackson didn't make the squad despite having the second best scoring average (10.6 ppg) and the third best rebound mark (5.6) of the 14 nominees.
