Brewton-Parker's Martin named All-American

The honors continue to pour in for Brewton-Parker College senior guard Monique Martin.

On March 14, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association and Eastman Kodak Company announced that Martin was named to the 2007 Kodak/WBCA All-America Basketball Team for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.

"I'm excited to be chosen as one of the best in the nation," said Martin, who is from Thomson. "There are some very good girls that have been chosen."

Nominated through the WBCA by head coach Sheila Simmons, Martin was among 28 finalists from the NAIA's six regions. From those finalists, the top ten players in the country were selected to the team.

"This year's Kodak/WBCA All-America Team for the NAIA truly stands above the rest in women's basketball," said WBCA CEO Beth Bass. "We congratulate these student-athletes for their dedication and perseverance in taking women's basketball to another level."

Martin averaged 29.5 points and 9.7 rebounds per game for the Barons (17-12, 9-12 SSAC) this season. She also averaged 1.7 assists and 3.7 steals.

In addition to being given the WBCA honor, Martin was also named by the NAIA as a Division I first team All-American.
