SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – Benefitting from one of the best regular seasons in program history, Lena Rivera and Jacquelyn Marshall have been named to the 2012-13 All-GSAC Women’s Basketball Team.
Rivera, a senior guard from Allen, Texas, earned her second consecutive all-conference selection, putting together one of the finest all-around seasons in school annals. She averaged 10.1ppg and five rebounds per game while posting career-highs with 96 assists and a GSAC-best 74 steals. Rivera scored a season-high 19 points in a 76-65 upset of No. 7 Vanguard on February 19 and pulled down eight rebounds on three occasions.
Meanwhile, Marshall (San Clemente, CA) made a seamless transition after transferring from UC Irvine, posting team-highs of 13.1ppg (eighth in the GSAC) and 7.6rpg (sixth in the conference). On the way to a team-best seven double-doubles, the junior forward tallied a season-high 26 points vs. Lewis-Clark St. (ID) on November 9 and yanked down a season-best 15 rebounds vs. Simpson on January 5.
The two honorees are part of a team that won 25 games (25-4) during the regular season, the fourth-best mark in Lady Mustang history, and now face Biola in a GSAC Tournament quarterfinal matchup Wednesday at 7:30 PM in Bross Gym.
